A Healthy Soup

Pea and prawn soup with rapeseed oil

With the darker nights looming, there has never been a better time to get practicing perfecting healthy, yet hearty soups, for the upcoming colder months. 

One of our current favourites is Pea Soup with Prawns.

One key feature within the Pea and prawn Soup is that we use our very own Brock & Morten Rapeseed Oil. Not only is Rapeseed Oil low in saturated fat, it will also provide you with a great boost of Vitamin E and Omega 3,6 and 9.

  3. Remove from the heat and pour into a blender. Blend on a high setting for approximately 5 minutes until the consistency is smooth. Season to taste and then blend for a few seconds.
