Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons good quality vegetable oil
  • 1 white onion, finely chopped or diced
  • 800g baking potatoes, peeled and diced into small pieces
  • 1-litre vegetable stock
  • 350g frozen or fresh peas
  • Handful fresh mint, roughly chopped or ripped

Method

  1. Begin by heating the vegetable oil in a large, thick-bottomed saucepan. Add the diced onion, cover the pan and sweat the onion for five minutes until it softens and turns golden.
  2. Add the potatoes and the stock to the cooked onion. Bring the whole lot up to boiling point then turn down the heat and cover the pan again.  Gently simmer for 20 minutes until the potatoes are tender and falling apart.
  3. Add the peas and the fresh mint and cook for a further five minutes, stirring frequently.
  4. Using a slotted spoon, remove roughly a quarter of the vegetables from the pan and place on the side. Blend the remaining soup using a blender or in a food processor until smooth.
  5. Stir the reserved vegetables into the soup, season to taste. Return to a low heat for a few minutes until piping hot.
