Easy pea and pesto soup

Very easy, elegant and light soup. Ideal as a starter, or for lunch. Most ingredients you will already have, ready in 15 minutes. Very easily doubled or halved.

Something else. It's not really a tweak just advise to use a really good pesto rather than a cheaper version. Marks and Spencer green pesto is really good in this soup. Go on spoil yourself....

This is soup is one of our favourites, if you find the pesto taste too strong, try different makes, Asda pesto isn't too strong, I've made this so many times it's different all the time, depending on stock used or make of pesto. I've passed it onto to lots of friends too who have had it at one of my dinner parties! SO easy! Easiest soup I've ever made!

Souper! (Sorry I couldn't resist) I accidentally put a bag of frozen peas in the fridge instead of the freezer so made this soup to avoid wasting them. It's so quick and easy and tastes pretty good.

Lovely soup! I do usually dry fry a packet of bacon first, double up all of the ingredients and add garlic, ginger and basil but the soup is fine as it is especially for feeding fussy veggie friends, obviously without the addition of the bacon and using a veggie stock - everybody loves this soup, even fussy children and it is just so super quick to make!

Delicious easy to make soup. I used a cheaper pesto and ended up using the whole jar for taste.

This is one of my favourites soups. I make batches of soup to freeze in portions for my lunches. Sometimes i have it for dinner and grill some good quality fisher fingers and break these up on top of the soup - sounds a bit odd but it sure is tasty!

This is a brilliant recipe! It's so easy, uses simple ingredients, doesn't take long at all either, even though it tastes like a lot of effort has gone into it :D the only changes I made were to leave out about 1/4 pint of the water and, at the end, replace it with milk; also I only put in about two tablespoons of pesto just because it was enough for my taste. Thanks for this recipe!
