06 Sep Green Goodness
With a change of season it’s time to start thinking about the different dishes we’ll start to make to accompany it. Now is a great time to learn some new soup recipes, the results can be used to accompany your evening meal or can be taken in a flask to work for lunch.
The first soup recipe we’re sharing with you this autumn is made up of three green items that most of us usually have in, cucumber, frozen peas and lettuce. A great way to use up the last of any cucumber and lettuce you have left after making salads in the warmer weather! Another great thing about this recipe is that everyone can enjoy it, it’s vegetarian and vegan meaning it’s dairy free and it’s also gluten and nut free! Plus it’s great with rye bread which even some people who are sensitive to gluten can still enjoy!
So without further or do here’s what you’ll need and what you’ll need to do to make this green goodness!
What you’ll need;
1 tsp rapeseed oil
small bunch spring onions, roughly chopped
1 cucumber, roughly chopped
1 large round lettuce, roughly chopped
225g frozen peas
4 tsp vegetable bouillon (use a vegan version if catering for vegans)
What you’ll need to do;
- Add 1.4 litres water to a kettle and boil. Put rapeseed oil in a large non-stick frying pan heat and then add spring onions and cook for 5 mins, keep stirring and once they’re softened they’re ready. Get the cucumber, lettuce and peas and add to the mix, then add the boiled water. Measure the spoons of bouillon adding to the mix and then cover and let it simmer for 10 mins, you will know it’s ready when the vegetables are soft but still bright green.
- You can have the soup as it is or if you’d like a smoother version you can blitz it with a hand blender until it’s smooth. Another great thing about this recipe is it can be enjoyed hot or cold, however you prefer!
