Pea and Mint Soup
Pea and mint soup is my mum’s favourite soup. I decided to make it one afternoon for lunch. Out of all the creamy soups I have made so far, pea and mint is the easiest by far. There is minimum preparation and it is easy to process the peas and turn them into a purée.
After trying it, I can see why mum loves this soup. The peas are so sweet and the mint compliments them so much. In terms of health, peas have lots of vitamin C and E as well as antioxidants that support the immune system. If you’re strapped for time and need something healthy then this is the soup to make.
