Like two peas in a pod, this dish and I were practically made for each other. A strong statement, I know, however it is entirely true. The fact of the matter is that I have always been a huge pea lover and after my wisdom teeth started flaring up and causing me a fair amount of pain, I decided it was time I curate my own pea soup recipe. Not just any pea soup recipe, however, but the ultimate pea soup recipe.
This dish is (jam?) packed with nutrients with a daily dose of your required omega 3, vitamin C, K, B1, B6 and B2, zinc,iron,calcium, potassium and with 24g of protein per serving. Therefore, this is the perfect meal to help nurse yourself or loved ones back to good health. Did I forgot to mention how yummy it is too and it’s incredibly easy to make. Just throw everything into a hot pot, leave to cook then puree in a blender or food processor. I like my soups to be of a really thick consistency but if it’s not to your liking, simply add some more liquid to thin it out.
Cook Time: 15 min
● 1tbsp Rosemary
● 300g White Potatoes
● 80g Frozen Peas
● 35g Frozen sweetcorn
● 1 large carrot, chopped
● 1 tbsp chia seed

1. Chop up the potatoes to medium sized pieces and add to a pan with 100ml of water. Place the pan onto the hob and turn heat up to high.
2. Leave the potatoes to boil for approx 5-6 mins before adding in the peas, sweetcorn and carrots. Then add the veg stock, rosemary and a little salt if you so desire. Leave this to boil for another five mins.
3. Meanwhile, drain and wash the chickpeas and add to a blender with the spinach, chia seed, hemp powder and a sprinkle of salt. Pulse this a few times and leave to the side.
4. Your vegetables should now have softened in the pan, check that the potatoes are cooked by carefully sticking a knife in to check if they are soft.
5. Once the potatoes are cooked and the water is minimal, gently pour everything into the blender with the chickpeas and spinach. Blend until you have a smooth consistency and serve.
