Protein Pea and Mint Soup

Protein Pea Soup

This soup is so quick, easy to throw together and makes a real hero out of the humble garden pea. There aren’t lots of vegetables to chop and we used frozen garden peas. This dish is excellent to have as a post workout meal and can also be taken to work the following day. It’s a fantastic dish to have if you’re into weekly food prep.

Top tip! Use a good quality low salt stock (we used the brand Kallo). Most brands of stock have added sugar.

METHOD: 

In a large pot add the coconut oil, onions and garlic, then sauté over a medium heat for 4-5 minutes until the onions become soft. Add the Naked protein and one cup of water and mix thoroughly.

Increase heat and add the rest of the water, frozen peas, stock cubes, salt and pepper and let it boil. Once it reaches a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for approximately 15 minutes. 

Turn off the heat and add the mint leaves, then blend the soup on low speed and gradually increase to high speed. Blend until the soup is creamy in appearance and texture. 

Adjust seasoning as desired.
