Pea, lettuce and asparagus soup was this week’s special, and it turned out pretty well!
The texture post-stick-blender-blitz was a lot like what I’m used to from tinned pea-and-ham soup, though perhaps a bit more runny — I suppose I must have used a little too much stock, taking into account the water content of the veg involved.
The recipe called for a splash of lemon juice at one point, but I deduced that this was more for a hint of sour-sharpness than any specific lemony flavour, so I used a couple of teaspoons of Dijon mustard instead. It worked pretty well, so I’ve made a note of this for future reference.
Lots of vitamins and roughage and nutrients in this one, so it’s a very good way to get some of your 5-a-day 🙂 The veg-heaviness also helps keep the calorie count way down, which is good ^^
