Top up your SOUPS with SHOOTS!
This is our favorite Fall Recipe! We took a classic fall soup and paired it with truly satisfying pea shoots. So pull out your crock pot - it's time to cuddle up with a warm, savory bowl of soup as we re-create a Fall- favorite with our own Pea shoots
Fresh Vertical Shoots Micro salad Mix, to serve
2 tbsp oil (any type)
2 onions, roughly chopped
800g/1lb 12oz root vegetables, any kind (see tip below), peeled and cut into roughly 2cm/¾in chunks
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
2 chicken or vegetable stock cubes
ground black pepper
Heat the oil in a large non-stick saucepan and gently fry the onions for 6–8 minutes, or until softened and beginning to brown, stirring regularly.
Add the vegetable chunks and cook for 5 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Stir in the garlic and cook for a few seconds more.
Crumble over the stock cubes, add 1 litre/1¾ pints water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover the pan loosely with a lid and cook for about 20 minutes or until the vegetables are very soft, stirring occasionally. Some will soften more quickly than others. Remove the pan from the heat.
Blitz the soup with a stick blender until very smooth and season with plenty of ground black pepper. Add a splash of just-boiled water if the soup is a little thick.
Ladle into bowls, top with fresh Vertical Shoots Micro Salads, and serve with the bread.
