Green Pea Soup - Cooking with Evie

Recently my miss Evie won Charlie's Cookies competition on facebook for her delicious shoe shaped cookies she made for her birthday.

Part of her magnificent prize was this recipe book Roald Dahl's Completely Revolting Recipes, along with a gorgeous apron, cooking utensils and oh, not to mention a years supply of cookies!!!!

This recipe for Green Pea Soup was her first choice to cook.
Firstly she chopped up the spring onion.

Then the garlic.

She peeled the potatoes, and chopped them up.

And I am pleased to announce all fingers were still perfectly intact.

After sweating the onion, garlic and potato with some butter the peas and chicken stock are added, simmering slowly for fifteen minutes.

The bacon was chopped and cooked until nice and crispy.

And what better to serve with then some home baked sourdough.

The bread is coated with some seasoned oil.

Then cooked in the griddle pan, yum.

Meanwhile the soup is pureed.

Topped with bacon and devoured.

It was actually fantastic, such a simple recipe that results in great flavour and very satisfying.

Thank you Charlie's Cookies :)


  1. Ooooh, looks REALLY REALLY tasty Evie...maybe you'd give me a copy of the recipe so I can make this at my house. AND you're chopping is much better than mine (I nearly chopped my finger off last night - whoops)!

  2. Oh congrats to Evie for winning the Facebook competition - her shoe shaped cookies are soo cute! And looks like she's quite the chef in the kitchen, guess she takes after her Mum :) This soup looks lovely!

  3. Oh my gosh this is such a sweet and loving post, Muppy. You've really got yourself a star right there in the making. One day, she's going to look back at this post and see how far she's come and how you really helped cultivate her interest from such a young age. Besides that, cooking is always a great way for parents/children to bond. Love it, so happy for the both of you!

  4. Awesome little chef! You must be so proud.

  5. Aww she's so adorably talented! Well done Evie (that's also the name of my god daughter-great name ;) ).

  6. Congratulations to Evie on winning the competition! Those cookies are so cute! She seems to be quite a little chef as this soup looks fantastic too.

  7. She is a true junior chef Muppy! The soup looks awesome but the most impressive thing is the little chef!

  8. Adorable that the little ones are so happy to help. They just want to follow mumma ;)

  9. You have one talented little girl! She is amazing! Congratulations to Evie for winning!
