This soup is spring in a bowl. The recipe is from the ever helpful Nigel Slater and is a simple, lively puree of softened shallots, lettuce and peas, with a fresh green hit of mint for freshness and a splash of buttermilk for tang. Serve it with a swirl of yoghurt or cream and snipped fresh mint or chives and a hunk of warm bread. Defrost before reheating in a saucepan or microwave, stirring occasionally, till piping hot.
Peas, lettuce, shallot, butter, salt, vegetable stock, mint, buttermilk. (MILK)

If you're not keeping this dish vegetarian, some crumbled crisp prosciutto or bacon sprinkled on top would make a delicious savoury, salty contrast with the sweet soup.
