GREEN PEA, WATERCRESS, LIME AND AVOCADO SOUP


(Serves 1)
  • 1 cup of peas
  • 1/4 avocado (large)
  • Large handful of watercress roughly chopped
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • Small handful of mint, finely chopped
  • Small handful of basil, finely chopped
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

To serve

  • Natural Yoghurt
  • Microgreens

Green peas provide a good source of carbohydrates and contain high amounts of Vitamin-K, which assists in maintaining strong bones. The leafy green watercress also has potent anti-cancer effects and contains high amounts of lutein, beneficial for healthy eyes.

  1. Place the peas in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring up to the boil and simmer for 3-4 minutes or until cooked. Drain (reserving some of the cooking water) and pour into the PREPSTAR food processor. Using the chopping blade, process on Speed 2 until smooth.
  2. Add the avocado, watercress, lime zest and juice, mint, basil and olive oil together with the peas and season with salt and pepper; process on Speed 2.
  3. Continue processing whilst slowly adding reserved cooking water until you reach the desired consistency.

Serve with micro-greens or extra herbs and a dollop of natural yoghurt and drizzle with a little bit of extra virgin olive-oil.
