Peas and mint soup (Vegan & Glutenfree)

I assume this is the same for you, but as far as I am concerned, I can’t move due to the giant amount of food I just ate, and my butt is currently screaming for help (and it starts to be difficult to ignore!). Therefore, this year, and for once, I won’t procrastinate and I am starting a post-holiday detox right away. (Don’t worry though, this recipe will pair perfectly with the chocolate leftovers from Christmas… I said “detox”, not “torture”)

This is a really easy one, but the mint makes it super fresh and light (as long as you don’t pick the topping from the second list….)

For 3 bowls
• 1 medium onion • 3 garlic cloves • 1 large potato • 1 big bag of frozen peas (16 ounces) • 1 cube vegetable stock •  33fl oz. water • 1 bunch of fresh mint •  salt, pepper, olive oil •

  • Bring the frozen peas out of the freezer.
  • Place a large pan on high heat with a little bit of extra virgin olive oil. Chop and sauté the onion and the garlic for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the diced potato and the peas, then pour the water and add the vegetable stock.
  • Add the stock and peas in the pan.
  • Stir and bring to the boil, then reduce heat and put the lid on.
  • Let simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, until potato and peas are cooked.
  • Remove from heat, add the washed mint leaves and let cool for a bit (you want to avoid pouring extra hot liquid in your blender, otherwise you’ll end up with a 2nd degree burn!)
  • Pulse the soup until smooth.
  • Garnish (see below)
