Pea and Chilli Soup with Fishy Croutons

Serves 2 | Cooking Time 30mins

Ingredients

  • 2 medium Potatoes
  • 3 cloves of Garlic
  • 2 Onions
  • 1 Chicken stock cube
  • A couple of shakes of Chilli Flakes
  • 4 Fish Fingers / similar crumbed fish fillets
  • 400g of Frozen Peas
  • 2 Pints of Water

Method

Pre heat the oven to the recommended heat on the fish’s packaging. Roughly chop the onions and garlic. Sautรฉ the onions and garlic in a deep stock pot until soft. Chop the potatoes into small cubes to speed up the cooking process. Once the garlic and onions are soft; add the water, stock and the potatoes to the pan. Cover with a lid. Put the fish on a baking tray and pop into the preheated oven. Turn halfway through the recommended cooking time.

When the Potatoes are soft, tip in the bag of frozen peas and add the chilli flakes. Re-cover with the lid and leave for a further 5 mins. Check that the fish is cooked and crispy, then remove from the oven to cool a little. By now the peas should have cooked, if so, remove from the heat and bend until smooth. Top with the crumbled up fish.

Serve with a squeeze of tomato sauce if you dare..
