Heat the olive oil in a large pot. Add the onions, potato and garlic and fry for 2-3 minutes.

Add the stock, bring to the boil and then turn down to a simmer for 10 minutes until the potato is soft.

Add the peas and simmer for 3 minutes, then remove the pot from the heat.

Stir in the mint, sugar, lemon juice and most of the yoghurt. Leave to cool for a few minutes then blend, adding salt and pepper to taste.

Garnish with a dollop of the remaining yoghurt, a few whole peas and a little chopped mint.

Re-heat to serve or eat cold as an al-fresco option.

Serving Idea: With grilled ciabatta or baguette slices topped with goats cheese or parmesan shavings and a drizzle of olive oil.
