Pea Soup, from Meal Plan 1

Faggots
Pea soup, a lovely quick and simple soup using frozen green peas and not a lot else. And at 16p a serving, a cheap family recipe.  If you are following the weekly planner, you are likely to need more calories at lunchtime, so use one or more of the cakes and bakes to follow the soup

Add a sprig or two of mint if you have any. Some big butter beans would be delicious in this, adding extra protein too

This is from Meal Plan 1, a complete 7 day plan for 2 adults. Containing 3 meals a day, plus snacks , all recipes and a shopping list

    Hi Erica
    A redesign process has been taking place over the last few weeks. Some posts had some errors and I’m going through checking them all as we speak. The recipe card had been omitted in this post, and I’ve put it back now, so you can go on and make your soup

    If you spot any more errors before I get there, I’d appreciate you letting me know, thanks. Sorry about the inconvenience

    Hi, I can’t see the recipe for this, has this been removed as well as the lentil soup?

  4. Lesley

    No, the cooking water is the stock, so leave it all in

  5. Alison

    Do you drain off the cooking water before you mash up the peas?

  6. Lee

    Absolutely love this soup… I make it very regularly now. So tasty. Thank you.
