Healthy, because

This satisfying soup is rich in vegetable protein from the white beans and animal protein from the scallops, which are also a good source of healthy fatty acids.

Serve this soup with a toasted whole wheat baguette for added fiber.


1 ¼ cups dried white navy bean
1.333 cups fresh Fava bean
1 ½ cups Snap pea (cut in half diagonally)

Preparation steps


Soak the navy beans overnight in enough water to cover. Pour off the water and bring the same quantity of fresh water to the boil in a pan. Simmer the beans for approx. 45 minutes until done.


Add the fava beans and snap peas to the white beans for the last 3-4 minutes of cooking time. Drain, rinse quickly with cold water, and drain thoroughly.

Bring the stock to the boil in a pan with the lime juice, lime halves and lemon grass. Season with salt and ground black pepper. Add the white asparagus and cook over a low heat for approx. 10 minutes. Add the green asparagus and simmer for a further approx. 5 minutes until done.
Meanwhile season the scallops with salt and lemon pepper. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the scallops on both sides until golden brown.

Add all the beans and snap peas to the stock. Heat through and check the seasoning.

Place the scallops in soup bowls and pour the soup over them. Sprinkle with the herb leaves and serve.
