A satisfying summery soup that is deliciously filling and so easy to make too.


Spring Onions

6 medium, chopped

Mint, Fresh

2 tablespoon(s), chopped plus a few for garnish

Calorie controlled cooking spray

5 spray(s)

Broad beans, boiled

350 g, defrosted if frozen

Vegetable stock cube

1 cube(s), 600ml stock

Skimmed Milk

150 ml


  1. Heat the low fat cooking spray in a large saucepan, add the onions and cook for 2-3 minutes until just softened. Add the beans, reserving a few for garnish and stock. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the milk and mint.
  2. Carefully pour into a food processor and blend until smooth. You may have to do this in batches. Alternatively use a hand blender. Return to the pan for 2-3 minutes and heat until piping hot. Season with freshly ground salt and pepper and serve garnished with the remaining beans and mint leaves.
