Add 200g of the peas, watercress and potato and continue to cook until soft and wilted.

Add the vegetable stock and simmer for 15-20 minutes , add the last of the peas – this will give the soup extra vibrancy.

Add the mint and seasoning and blitz with a blender until smooth.

Ladle into warm bowls and spoon in the yogurt and sprinkle with fresh mint.
Advice: Try: the soup cold over ice in those Summer months – the peas & watercress really zing!
