Butternut and Pea Soup

I have always been a bit jealous of people who were good at making soup. Anytime I tried, my soup would either turn out too watery or bland. I finally managed to figure out the right ratio of water to veggies, but spices remained a mystery to me. After some testing and tips from ‘soup-pros’ I have come up with some delicious and easy soup recipes such as this ‘Butternut and Pea Soup’.

2 servings

You’ll Need

  • 400g (pre-cut) butternut
  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 100g raw peas
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large tbsp vegetable stock
  • 2 small tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • Black pepper

Instructions

  1. Place a stockpot on medium fire.
  2. Peel the sweet potato and cut it up into cubes of about 2cm. If you cannot find pre-cut butternut, peel it, remove the insides and cut it up.
  3. Add olive oil to the stockpot and place the peas, butternut and sweet potato.
  4. Place the lid on the pot and leave the vegetables there for 3min.
  5. Pour in just enough water to cover the vegetables and increase the heat to ‘high heat’.
  6. Add in the vegetable stock, nutmeg, salt and pepper.
  7. Boil the vegetables with the lid on top until they are ready (soft), this takes about 7-10 minutes.
  8. Use a manual blender. Blend everything until smooth.
