Sometimes you don’t need lots of stuff in your food. Sometimes a certain food tastes so good you can devote a whole soup to it. Such a vegetable are peas. I’m pretty sure someone in a pub once told me that peas contain the same happiness-inducing hormone as chocolate does. PUBFACT. This is a quick, simple, very good for you, very tasty soup, fresh enough to taste good on a summer’s day. From River Cottage Veg Everyday, with little to no alterations. Enjoy.

Ingredients pic: (vegan if you substitute the butter, obvs)

Melt the oil and butter together, and then soften the onions with the chopped thyme.

When softened, add the peas, stock, and parsley I doubled the parsley amount because, well, I like it.

Cook for 10 minutes or so until the peas are cooked. Blend to a fine puree.

Season to taste, and serve!
