A Right Pea-Souper

A friend of mine recently attended a Halloween party dressed as Regan from the Exorcist, with mushy peas smeared down the front of his nightie. Try not to think about that as you greedily guzzle this delicious soup.

Thai Green Pea Soup

Enough for one

2 spring onions, roughly chopped
200g frozen peas
300ml boiling water
Thai green curry paste – about a teaspoon, to taste
50ml coconut cream, plus extra to garnish
Spritz of lime juice

1.    Chuck the peas, spring onions and water into a pan. Bring to the boil and simmer until the peas are just cooked.
2.    Take off the heat. Stir in the curry paste and whizz with a hand blender. Give it a taste and add more if you like it hotter.
3.    Stir in the coconut cream and a little lime juice. From a bottle is ok I suppose, but fresh is better.
4.    Heat through once more and serve with an artistic swirl of coconut cream.
