Ingredients

  • 30 g butter
  • 1 large onion, peeled and finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and finely chopped (optional)
  • 3 ripe pears, peeled, core removed and chopped
  • 1 litre vegetable stock
  • 500 g frozen peas
    Birds Eye Garden peas 800g
  • 80 g watercress
  • Sea salt and black pepper

Method

  1. Add the butter to a large heavy based saucepan.
  2. Add the onion, garlic and pears and cook them gently. Cook for approximately 2 minutes, or until the onion is looking about to turn brown.
  3. Add the vegetable stock and peas. Then, simmer for 5 minutes while adding in the watercress. Stir as you add the watercress. Save a couple of sprigs of watercress to be added as a garnish when serving.
  4. Adjust the seasoning with sea salt and black pepper, blending until the soup is smooth.
  5. Finally add a little creme fraiche and a sprig or two of watercress on top.
Serving tip

If you are looking for a healthier option then you can swap the butter for olive oil and use reduced-fat creme fraiche. You can also swap the stock cubes for low sodium stock cubes.
