Green Vegetable Soup

Green Vegetable Soup

Since we are doing budget-friendly dishes at IHCC this week, a seasonal vegetable soup seemed like a good idea.

Green Vegetable Soup

Adapted from Eat by Nigel Slater

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 galic clove, minced
piece of ginger, grated
1 tsp turmeric
1 dried chile

250 g broad beans, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch segments
250 g asparagus heads, trimmed
1 bunch spring onions, cut into 1/2-inch segments

1 can coconut milk
250 ml vegetable stock or water

250 g fresh peas (unshelled weight), shelled
salt and pepper

Method:

In a soup pot, heat the olive oil, add the garlic, ginger, turmeric and chile and fry for one minute. Add the broad beans, asparagus heads and spring onions and fry for one minute more. Add the cocnut milk and stock, let come to a simmer and cook until the beans are tender, about 8-10 minutes. Add the peas and salt and pepper to taste and serve.
