If you don’t have chicken stock, use water and the appropriate amount of stock cubes or soup powder.  I usually use frozen peas, if you decide to use dried peas, use about 300g and soak them for about 20 minutes prior to cooking – make sure to discard the water you soaked them in.  If you’re using fresh or frozen peas and want a brighter green only put half the peas in at the start, put the rest in immediately prior to using the blender.  If you’re using a regular blender and not a blender stick hold back about 1/3 of the water when blending – then add it back in to get the consistency you like.  Serve it with croutons, grated parmesan cheese and crumbled bacon.
