Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 ounce butter

  • 5 14 cups vegetable stock or 5 14 cups chicken stock
  • 12 teaspoon superfine sugar
  • 2 sprigs mint

Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan, add the chopped onion and cook very gently stirring occasionally for about 10 mins until soft but not colored.
  2. Sprinkle in the flour and stir for a further 1-2 mins then add the peas, stock, sugar and mint sprigs.
  3. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer gently stirring occasionally for about 5 mins or until the peas are soft. Do not simmer any longer than this or the peas will lose their fresh green color.
