Courgette and Pea Soup GF SCD

This deep green wholesome and very tasty soup can be created in minutes. Since I adore peas, I make sure we buy a pack of frozen peas every week to avoid any calamity that would arise if we actually ran out. We cook them every day, they are a fantastic source of plant protein. This soup recipe is also a perfect way to use up the odd courgettes that have been sadly neglected in the fridge. We tend to over stock courgettes and since I purposefully avoid throwing anything away, this soup has become a firm favourite.

Courgette and Pea Soup GF SCD

2 medium onions
750g or 5 medium courgettes (zucchini)
500g frozen or fresh peas
500ml vegetable stock or water
salt and freshly ground black pepper
pinch or two of mace
extra virgin olive oil

  • Slice the onions.
  • Heat a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in a large pan. Tip in the sliced onions and fry gently for five minutes.
  • Slice the courgettes (zucchini).
  • Add to the pan and fry gently for another five minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Tip the peas into the pan.
  • Add the vegetable stock and salt to taste, then bring to the boil and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Season with freshly ground black pepper and a pinch or two of mace then blend with a hand blender.

I served it with Onion Bhajis and SCD Onion Bhajis.
