Pea soup, poached hen egg
A special recipe to try today, as part of the Meat-Free Monday campaign.
6 small hen eggs
1kg frozen peas
1 large onion, chopped
800ml vegetable stock
100ml single cream
Salt and pepper
Poach the eggs in lightly salted boiling water for about 3 minutes, until the whites are just set. Refresh in ice cold water, then drain and trim the whites with a pair of scissors if necessary.
Sweat the onion in the butter over a low heat, with out letting the onion colour. When soft add the peas, season and sweat over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add the boiling vegetable stock bring to the boil, then add the cream and simmer for 5 minutes. Blend in a food processor, and then pass through a fine sieve.
Place the warmed poached egg into a soup bowl, season with salt and pepper, bring the soup to the boil, whisk with a hand blender, and then pour around the poached egg.
