Too much Lettuce to handle
Updated: Aug 29, 2019
Its that time of year when you have been waiting for ages for the growing to get going and then all of a sudden you have to much to handle.
This is where we are in the Doughtastic Polytunnel. Lettuce is the challenge but we have the solution.
Lettuce, Pea and Mint Soup
Fantastic to eat fresh, add to pasta as a sauce, or freeze for later.
All you need is
A big pile of the lettuce
A vegi stock cube or two
A bag of frozen peas
boiling water to cover the veg
Seasoning to taste
Put Lettuce in a big pan (after washing it ;-) )
Add stock Cubes
Add a bag of frozen Peas
Add chopped Onion (optional)
Cover Vegi's with boiling water. Bring to the boil and then simmer until all cooked
Remove from heat and take out most of the stock and keep to one side
Blend everything in the pan. Start to add the stock back in a little at a time until you are happy with the consistency.
Add mint sauce to the soup to taste along with seasoning.
We would love to see what you have made so feel free to pop over to the Doughtastic Facebook page and share.
