Pea and coriander soup

  • 900ml homemade chicken stock
  • 50g butter
  • 150g finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 green chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 450g peas (good quality frozen are fine)
  • 10g chopped fresh coriander, plus whole leaves for garnish
  • Sugar, for seasoning
  • Softly whipped cream, for garnish
1) Bring the chicken stock to a boil and keep warm.

2) Melt the butter on a gentle heat and add the onions, garlic, and chilli. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper and sweat for 3 to 4 mins. Add the peas and cover with the hot stock. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 to 8 mins. Add the coriander and puree the liquid in a blender. Season with salt, freshly ground pepper and a pinch of sugar, which enhances the flavour even further. Serve with a swirl of softly whipped cream and a few fresh coriander leaves sprinkled over the top.
