Minted pea soup

Minted pea soupThere are several recipes online to choose from. I used this one as a base. The result was fantastic (to my taste of course). I think the key here is a good homemade broth. Also, I’d recommend using mint with caution. Babies in general have very sensitive palates and mint is definitely very fragrant. Start by adding just a bit and see how your baby likes it.

Recipe:
– 1 cup chopped leeks
– 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
– 1 tbsp Ghee
– 1 small garlic clove
– 2.5 cups freshly shelled peas
– 2 cups vegetable broth
– salt and pepper to taste
– 3 tbsp chopped mint
– plain yogurt for serving

Heat Ghee in a medium saucepan. Add leeks, onion and garlic. Cook on medium heat until onion is softened, about 5-7 minutes. Add broth, bring to a boil, stir in peas, reduce heat to low and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes until peas are tender. Off heat stir in mint, salt and pepper. Puree the soup in a blender (or using an immersion blender). Serve with plain yogurt.
