Recipe

As English as English could be. Reminds me of Wimbledon and lazy afternoons.

Yield: Serves 2-4

Ingredients

  • Olive oil
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 3 cups of frozen peas
  • 1 quart of vegetable or chicken stock
  • A good handful of fresh mint, chopped, plus extra to garnish
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of creme fraiche

Directions

In a medium-sized saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sauté the scallions for about 3 minutes. Add the peas and coat them in the oil, stirring. Add the stock and mint and cook for about 10-15 minutes. Transfer to a blender and whiz in batches if the blender isn’t big enough.

Cool in the fridge, season and whirl in the creme fraiche. Serve with a bit more mint chopped on top.
