A lovely quick and simple soup using everyday ingredients and at 16p a serving, a frugal meal. If you are following the weekly planner, you are likely to need more calories at lunchtime, so use one or more of the cakes and bakes to follow the soup
20ml vegetable oil
Simmer the peas in 500ml water for about 15 minutes. Whizz with a stick blender or in a liquidiser until smooth.
Make a paste with the flour and oil and stir into the soup. Whizz again and simmer very gently for a minute a two to cook off the flour. Stir in the milk
Season with salt and pepper
Makes 2 portions
Add a sprig or two of mint if you have any. Add some red lentils or other pulses for extra nourishment, some big butter beans would be delicious in this
