Easy to make, vibrant and so good for you. Great source of protein. Watercress is in season now too.
A dash or two of olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
600ml of stock
300g frozen peas
Salt and pepper
Coconut yoghurt (optional)
1. Place pan over medium heat and add a drizzle of olive oil, the onion, garlic and a pinch of salt & pepper.
2. Cook until soft, about 5-10mins.
3. Add the stock and peas, then simmer for another 10mins.
4. Finally add the watercress and cook for 5 mins until wilted. Remove from heat and blend until smooth.
Serve and enjoy. I sometimes add a blob of coconut yoghurt or a swirl of oil. Decorate with chives
