It says summer, but this might make a good lunch for a stuffy overheated office in winter. Another Waitrose card, serves 6, 224 cals per.
- 1 tsp butter
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
- 250 gms courgettes, sliced
- 250 gms peas
- 750 mls hot stock, chicken or veggie
- 20 gm pack fresh mint
- 500g tub greek yoghourt
Melt the butter and add garlic, onion and rosemary. Cook until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes, stir in courgettes. Cook for 5 more minutes, until courgette is starting to soften but not colour.
Add peas, and stock. Boil and simmer for 10 minutes until courgette is tender. Cool, and discard rosemary.
Blend soup with mint and yoghourt. Season to taste and chill.
(They suggest Fudges Mature Cheddar and Black Pepper flatbreads to serve, but if you needed something else almost any crispbread or toasted pitta bread would be fine. You could cut the calories with a low-fat yoghourt, but I suspect the richness of the yoghourt is crucial to the taste and texture of the soup.)
