Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 500g (1.1lb) Potatoes
  • 500g (3 1/3 cups) Frozen Peas
  • 1 litre (4 cups) Vegetable / Chicken Stock
  • 1/2 Lemon, juice of
  • 1 tbsp Mint, finely chopped

Instructions

  • Heat oil, in a large saucepan, over a medium high /heat. Add onions, reduce the heat and saute until softened (around five mins)
  • Add the garlic and stir for a further minute. 
  • Peel and dice the potatoes, add them to the pot and cook for around 2 minutes. 
  • Add the stock, bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 12-15 mins. 
  • Add the peas and continue to cook for a further 3 mins. 
  • Add the lemon juice and then blend the soup (I used a hand blender) until smooth. Add the mint and blend again.
  • Taste and season, adding more mint if desired. 

Notes

  1. If cooking for a baby use homemade stock or baby stock cubes. 
  2. If the soup is too thick you can add some more stock to thin it. 
  3. If you do not have a stick blender, allow to cool slightly before adding to a blender or food processor to blend. 
  4. You can add all the mint before blending but mint can be quite a strong flavour for kids. Start with a little mint, let them taste it and add more if desired.
