Asparagus, Pea and Mint Soup

This soup just makes me feel healthy even looking at it, I think it is because it’s green and green food makes me feel good. This is a really light soup and makes a great entree as it’s not too filling. I added a zucchini to mine even though it wasn’t in the initial recipe, it’s green so in it went, you can also add some spinach at the end with the mint if you too are excited by green things. If you like you can make this in your slow cooker but it is a pretty quick soup anyway.

750ml Veggie Stock (you can use chicken if you like)
250g frozen baby peas
2 bunches fresh asparagus-ends trimmed, roughly chopped
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
1 zucchini- OPTIONAL diced
1 onion- diced
2 large cloves garlic- crushed
1 tbs macadamia oil (or oil of your choice)

In a pot sauté onion and garlic in the oil. Add zucchini and asparagus and sauté for a few more minutes until starting to soften. Add stock and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 1/2 hr. Remove from heat, add peas and mint and blitz with a stick mix until smooth. Serve with a dollop of natural yoghurt if you like, I do 🙂
