  • Effort: easy



  • 50 g butter
  • 150 g onions, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 red or green chillies, seeds removed and chopped
  • 0.5 tsp salt and black pepper, or to taste
  • 850 ml chicken or vegetable stock
  • 450 g fresh or frozen peas
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander


Melt the butter in a large saucepan, and add the onion, garlic and chilli. Cover with a greaseproof paper and a lid, and sweat over a low heat for 3 or 4 minutes, or until the onions are soft. Pour in the stock, and bring the soup to the boil.

Tip in the peas and boil rapidly, without the lid, for about 2 or 3 minutes, or until the peas are tender. Add the coriander to the soup, and blend in a liquidiser until smooth.
