Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • knob of butter
  • ½ bunch spring onion , sliced, plus a few extra to serve
  • 1 potato , cut into small dice
  • 1l hot vegetable stock
  • 900g frozen petits pois
  • ½ small bunch mint , leaves picked, plus a few extra to serve
  • 85g parmesan (or vegetarian alternative), very finely grated

 

 

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the olive oil and butter in a heavy based pan. When foaming, add the spring onions and potato. Gently fry without colouring for about 5 mins. Stir in the stock, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 mins or until the potato is tender.

  • STEP 2

    Stir in the peas, bring to the boil again, then cook for about 3 mins until they are just done. Remove the pan from the heat, add the mint leaves and whizz in a blender or food processor until smooth.

  • STEP 3

    To make the parmesan biscuits, heat the grill to high. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment and divide the grated parmesan into 6 long strips. Grill for 1 min or until the cheese has melted and is lightly golden. While still warm and a bit flexible, release the biscuits from the baking parchment with a palette or cutlery knife, then cool until firm.

  • STEP 4

    To serve, heat the soup and divide between 6 bowls. Scatter with mint and sliced spring onions, if you like, and serve with the parmesan biscuits on the side.
