You will love the bright colour this soup has,just looking at it brightens you up on a gloomy Winters day and the wonderful aroma and taste well it’s divine.
Plan ahead when making this soup as you going to have a whole head of garlic in your oven for about 40min to and hour.Slice off the top of the head of garlic place in centre of a well oiled Pyrex dish or do what I do (I use those foil mini pie dishes that can be thrown away when I’m done with them)and drizzle with olive oil and place in the centre of your oven and bake at 180C.
in a pot with salted water place 400g of frozen peas and cook until the water starts to boil.Remove from heat and drain the peas and liquidize them until smooth (I go an extra step further and sieve it into my pot).
By this time the awesome aroma permeating from your kitchen is amazing,remove the garlic head from the oven and allow to cool before you squeeze all that awesomeness onto the peas.Add 2tbsp of butter , 2 tbsp of hard cheese such as Parmesan or any other hard cheese you prefer, make 500mls of watered stock and slowly add the stock to the pea puree until you have the soupy consistency you like and the taste is to your liking, do this over medium heat and stir occasionally.
You can definitely add pouring cream before serving.
Accompany your soup with a divine slice of bread.
