What you will need
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1 bunch of spring onions
- A handful of fresh mint
- 3 cups of frozen garden peas (or petit pois)

Firstly, chop the garlic, spring onions, and fresh mint, and add to a heated pot with a splash of olive oil. Allow to sweat for 7-10 minutes
Then, add the frozen peas and the vegetable broth. Bring to boil, then allow to simmer for 20-30 minutes
Once the peas have cooked and softened, remove the pot off the heat. Use an electric hand blender to smooth out the soup. Season to taste.
Serve with a dollop of natural yoghurt (optional)
