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.


Ready and waiting for a transformation

Lettuce, Pea and Mint Soup


Fantastic to eat fresh, add to pasta as a sauce, or freeze for later.


All you need is


Ingredients

  • A big pile of the lettuce

  • A vegi stock cube or two

  • A bag of frozen peas

  • onion (optional)

  • boiling water to cover the veg

  • Mint Sauce

  • Seasoning to taste

Preparation method

  1. Put Lettuce in a big pan (after washing it ;-) )

  2. Add stock Cubes

  3. Add a bag of frozen Peas

  4. Add chopped Onion (optional)

  5. Cover Vegi's with boiling water. Bring to the boil and then simmer until all cooked

  6. Remove from heat and take out most of the stock and keep to one side

  7. Blend everything in the pan. Start to add the stock back in a little at a time until you are happy with the consistency.

  8. Add mint sauce to the soup to taste along with seasoning.

Just yummy.


We would love to see what you have made so feel free to pop over to the Doughtastic Facebook page and share.
