    1. Place the peas, stock cube, onion and water in a large pan and bring to the boil. Cover and gently simmer for 40 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile, mix the oil with the spices and herbs for the Moroccan drizzle.
    3. Puree the soup with a hand blender until smooth. Serve with a drizzle of the Moroccan oil.


    Try using sweet smoked paprika instead of chilli powder for a mild flavour.
