Going all the way Green with 3G Soup




Very simply and healthy soup contains three greens, easy to prepare and very hearty and feeling...makes a substantial lunch, or can be served in smaller portions as a starter....why 3G!! Check the Ingredients...

You will need:-

Large bunch watercress, washed, stalks and leaves separated
Small packet baby spinach, washed

300ml vegetable stock
500ml Skimmed Milk
1 tbsp  oil
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 medium potato, cubed
Bunch fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped
400g fresh or frozen shelled peas
Salt to taste
White pepper powder
 
Method:-
 
Chop the watercress stalks (reserving the leaves) and put into a small saucepan with the stock or water and  milk and bring to a simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and leave to infuse.
 
Heat the oil in a large pan and add the onion. Cook on a low heat until softened but not coloured. Add the potato and little water, stir, cover and cook until soft. Add the mint,  spinach and peas, strain the  milk stock into the pan, discarding the watercress stalks, season and simmer for 2 minutes. Stir in the watercress leaves and turn off the heat.
 
Blend the soup with the blender and serve warm and Garnish with croutons and cream if you like...
