This soup is delicious as part of a picnic. Ladle into an insulated flask while hot and swirl over the soya cream just before eating.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • ½ tsp dried chilli flakes, extra for garnish
  • 300g frozen peas

  • Generous handful of fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • Generous handful of fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
  • Generous pinch of sea salt and black pepper
  • Juice of ½ unwaxed lemon
