Pea & Mint Soup
It's winter time and my favourite winter warmer is a thick & hearty soup! This pea soup is delicious and creamy but still low in fat and is always a favourite with guests :)

diced 70g carrot
chopped 1 small clove fresh garlic
crushed pinch salt and freshly ground pepper
500g frozen peas

Fry the onions and carrots together in the oil until they soften. Add the garlic, peas, salt and pepper and mix for a minute.
