Easy peasy soup

To add more green colour to this place here is a green pea soup - easy to make, light, and perfect for a spring dinner.
In fact the soup is so easy it requires only 2 main ingredients but you can experiment with flavours - I've included some suggestions at the end of the recipe

What you need

2 tbsp olive oil
4 garlic cloves, crushed
2 cups frozen green peas
3-4 medium potatoes, quartered
4 cups vegetable broth
1/2 tbp fresh terragon, minced
1/2 cup milk or cream (soy milk for a vegan version)
salt and pepper

What to do

  • In a soup pot heat olive oil.  Add garlic and let cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add potatoes and vegetable broth.  Cook until potatoes are almost ready (about 5-7 minutes).  Add peas and terragon and cook a bit more until potatoes are fully ready.
  • Puree soup, add milk, stir, and adjust for seasoning.

Note: Other vegetables to try in this soup: fennel, turnips, celeriac, or rutabaga.

Pretty easy, eh?  What's your favorite easy soup recipe?
