  • 1 bunch spring onions chopped
  • 1 large potato peeled and chopped
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 1 litre vegetable stock
  • 250 g frozen peas
  • 100 g fresh spinach
  • 300 ml natural yogurt
  • 10 g fresh mint to garnish


  • Put the spring onions, potato and garlic into a large pan.
  • Pour over the vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 mins with a lid on or until the potato is soft enough to mash with the back of a spoon.
  • Add the peas and bring the mixture back up to a simmer. Scoop out around 4 tablespoons of the peas and set aside for the top.
  • Stir the spinach and yogurt into the pan.
  • Carefully pour the whole mixture into a blender or use a stick blender to whizz it up until it’s very smooth. Season to taste with black pepper.
  • Ladle into bowls then add some of the reserved cooked peas and scatter the top with the mint. Serve with crusty bread, if you like.
