Who’d have guessed that a couple of bags of frozen veg and a handful of fresh veg can make something so tasty and nutritious? Try this Soya Bean, Pea and Spinach Soup.
Cook time: 15 mins
200g frozen soya beans
200g frozen peas
600ml hot vegetable stock
5 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
12 basil leaves
1 handful (about 60g/2oz) fresh baby spinach leaves
300ml soya milk
Several small basil leaves to finish (optional)
1 Put the frozen beans and peas into a saucepan. Pour in the vegetable stock and add the spring onions, basil and spinach.
2 Bring to the boil, then simmer for 10 mins until the beans and peas are tender.
3 Pour half of the soup into a blender, whizz until smooth. Return to the pan with the milk and warm through. Season well and serve finished with extra basil leaves, if you like.
Food Ed’s tip: You’ll find the frozen soya beans next to the frozen peas in the supermarket.
