It's considered a little unusual to cook lettuce in this country, but this vivid green and fresh tasting soup makes good use of the battered remnants of a large one. Use either frozen peas or the fresh that are just coming in now. They don't have to be really tender and sweet; in fact the tougher mealy ones give the soup a really nice texture It can be served warm or chilled.

Ingredients

  • 300g green lettuce shredded
  • 1 medium onion finely sliced
  • 300g peas, fresh or frozen
  • 50g butter
  • 750g vegetable stock
  • a small handful of fresh mint
  • 50ml single cream

Instructions

  1. Gently fry the onion in the butter until soft but not too coloured.
  2. Add the peas and stock and simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the lettuce and mint and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  4. Add the cream and blend until smooth.
  5. Season well with salt and pepper and reheat gently.
