This is a super quick recipe I use when I need to get lunch on the table in a dash. Today my oldest was up at 3am, a sick little puppy. When my day starts off like this, I just know that things will not be running according to schedule, and lunch needs to be a no brainer, and no strainer. That’s why a quick lunch like this is just perfect when I know my hands will be full nursing a sick child the entire day.
ALL YOU NEED:
- 1 pack of frozen organic peas
- 3 spring onions chopped tip: scissors works a treat for this chopping job
- about 2 cups chicken stock
- left over lettuce if you have (not essential)
- chopped free range ham
ALL YOU NEED TO DO:
Fry up the spring onions on a gentle heat in some olive oil for about 2 min, add the chicken stock, peas and lettuce. Bring to the boil. Add the ham. Turn down the heat and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.
When you are ready for lunch, just transfer the peas with a slotted spoon to an electric blender( or use a hand-held blender) and gradually add soup ladles full of the liquid stock in-between each pulse of the blender until it reaches a consistency of your liking- we prefer a gorgeous green puree looking substance that smells just too scrumy-licious for words. I put a dollop of sour cream in the middle, and make a silly pattern so that the husband and little one feel ‘the love’!
