Pea and Pesto Soup – Nigella Lawson

3 cups water

3 cups frozen peas

2 scallions

1 teaspoon Maldon salt or kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon lime juice

4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) fresh pesto

The quickest way to proceed is to fill a kettle first and put it on to boil. When it’s boiled, measure the amount you need into a pan and put on the stove to come back to a boil.

Add the frozen peas, scallions, salt and lime juice and let everything bubble together for 7 minutes. Discard the scallions and blitz the peas and their liquid with the pesto in a blender. enough for 2 hearty bowls
