You Will Need
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil 
  • 25g butter
  • 1 medium red onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
  • 5 cups/750g or frozen peas
  • 1 cup/ 75g mint leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1 liter vegetable stock
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

  • Gently heat the oil and butter in a large saucepan, add the chopped onion and cook on a gentle heat for 10 minutes or until the onion is soft but not brown. Add the garlic and cook for a further 3 minutes.
  • Add 3/4 of the peas, the chopped mint leaves, and 3/4 stock. Cover the saucepan with a tight fitting lid and cook on a medium boil for 10 minutes.
