Quick Pea & Spinach Soup

Here’s a great green and filling soup to keep you and the kids going during late afternoon or early evening…


  • 200g frozen peas
  • 100g frozen spinach
  • 1 garlic clove,
  • chopped ½ chicken or vegetable stock cube
  • 2-3 tbsp full-fat Greek yoghurt


  • Place all the ingredients, apart from the yoghurt, in a medium-sized saucepan over a medium heat. Add 500ml water and bring it to the boil.
  • Season the soup generously with freshly ground black pepper, and allow it to simmer for about five minutes. Then remove it from the heat and blitz it with a hand-held blender or in a food processor, leaving some texture.
  • Share the soup between 2 bowls and add dollops of yoghurt in each.

You could garnish it with slivered almonds. Have it with a slice of wholegrain sourdough bread.
