Soup! You can wake me up in the middle of the night for a bowl of homemade, hot and delicious soup! To me it’s the ultimate comfortfood; warming, tasty and simply yummy. I often take a homemade soup with me to work for lunch. I have a fantastic container to take away my lunches, the Bento-box from Aladdin. It’s a double-walled container which keeps your lunch warm (or cold!) for a few hours. The lid closes perfectly and doesn’t leak.
Back to the soup! Somedays I have plenty of time to spend in the kitchen making a soup for next days’ lunch, but sometimes I’m in a bit of a hurry. Those are the days I grab back to my EasyPeasySoup-recipe, with deepfrozen peas and coconutmilk as the main-ingredients. Therefor I always have a bag of peas in the freezer and I always have some cans of coconutmilk in the pantry! The soup is ready within 15 minutes, so I can even make this one in the morning before I head off to work!
- 2 cups of frozen peas
- 1/2 can of coconutmilk
- 1 large onion, chopped
- handful of mint leaves
- unsalted vegetable stock
- 1 glove of garlic, cruched
Heat a little oil in a soup pot and fry the onion together with the garlic. Add the 2 cups of frozen peas and give it a stir. Add the vegetable stock (about 300 ml) and bring to the boil for about 10 minutes. Blend into a soup by using a handmixer (or a blender). Add 100 ml of coconut milk and a handful of fresh mint leaves, blend again and your all done!
You can add some black pepper to taste!
A super siple, yet delicious soup!
