Melt the butter in a large saucepan, then add the spring onion and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cover with a butter wrapper or greaseproof paper, put on the lid and sweat over a low heat for 3 or 4 minutes or until the onions are cooked. Then add the stock, turn up the heat to high and bring up to the boil.
Add the peas and cook for 1 or 2 minutes, making sure to remove the lid as soon as it comes to the boil (this keeps the peas’ fresh green colour intact). Add the mint/coriander (or both!) and transfer to a food processor for blending. Season and then serve.
Note: Like most soups, this freezes really well once cooled. Avoid prolonged boiling and simmering of this soup in order to retain the fresh green colour.
These recipes are perfect for someone who is taking two shakes a day and looking for an addition to their healthy active lifestyle. Find out more on Herbalife.co.uk
