And served it in a pretty mug.

Who could resist, did I ask?

My younger three children, that’s who!!

They are not very adventurous, but if I keep persisting then surely, eventually…..

    I love this pea soup recipe -I’ll have to try it.
    I’ve just started on a 3 second pea-soup which is literally just boiled peas and some coriander blended to an inch of it’s life. So simple and so yummy! My little girl loves it … my little boy just looks at it and goes ‘I’m okay, Mummy.’ And removes himself promptly!
    Otherwise I can’t go past the pumpkin soup – fried onion & lemongrass, pumpkin, maybe some carrot and sweet potato, and then spices, coconut cream and coriander. Mmm.

    Onion, garlic, red lentils, ground coriander, cumin and tumeric, tin of toms, cook and whizz, and children eat it, well mine did. X

      That’s my next soup to make then Mairi. My kids are NOT good at eating soup and I really regret that, I should have started ’em young.

    No Seana, should have lived in a cool climate. I noticed we hardly ate any soup in the Med but now back in the UK soup is a staple. X

  • I love this soup. I often add one potato to thicken it and make it go further. Fresh thyme works well as does half milk, half water in the stock.

    As for getting the kids to eat it. Let me share my secret:

    Snot Surfers!

    They love it:)

    You take a bowl of snot (pea soup) use scissors to cut a surfboard and surfer from toast. Stick the surfer’s feet in holes in the surfboard and stand him up. Now float the surf board and serve your yummy snot surfers:)

    PS. It is also yummy chilled in the summer. Pea soup, not snot….

      Great ideas Annabel, love it. I till try the snot surfers and also the variations. Tomorrow, I think, might try a bit of mint and milk for the next batch. So long as it stays bright, bright green, I’ll be happy.

      Yes love an easy soup. I hadn’t thought of tinned peas. Simple to keep in the cupboard. Must try adding curry. Thanks for saying g’day.
