"I don't like green soup"

They were the words from our youngest when he saw this bowl of soup last night. After a little encouragement, we get him to take a taste & the next words were, "I do like green".

This is a good soup to make because it is cheap, full of nutrients, quick and easy. If I can make it, anyone can.

We have now christened it Green Soup (it did used to have a fancier name of ...Green Pea Soup)

Chop up a couple of cloves of garlic and about four sticks of celery.
Saute them in a splash of olive oil.
Put a good sprinkling of cumin in the pot & stir it around
Chuck in about 2-3 litres of chicken stock. If you have homemade chicken stock, this would be grand to use, however, bought stuff would be just as good.
Add about 1kg of frozen peas and bring it to the boil

Once the peas are all mushy, blend together with a stick blender
Add a tin of chickpeas or any other legumes
Smash up some pasta (about 300g) and add this too, bring it up to the boil again and then make sure that you stir it so that it doesn't stick to the bottom.
Serve it up with a dollop of natural yoghurt, grating of parmesan cheese & cracked pepper.
Yummy & green
