Pea & Mint Soup


Peas is one of my favourite ingredients for most dishes and this pea mint soup is a delightful addition to a peas recipe repertoire. We have a delightfully chilly weather in Bangalore right now and that is making me revisit all my old soup recipes. Pair this with a bowl of salad or a couple of bread slices and make a meal of it.

Why I love this soup?

This pea mint soup soup is so easy and simple to make. Most of us have peas in the freezer and potatoes lying around. Get some mint and onions and you are set for some deliciousness.I love how this soup captures the peas flavour beautifully while enhancing it with the freshness of mint and tangy-ness of the lemon.

If you are a soup aficionado then you have landed at just the right place. I make soups with most vegetables I have. Soup is a perfect solution for having vegetables and keeping them tasty. Kid doesn’t like any vegetable? Soup it up. Too few pieces of too many vegetables? Soup it up. You are not sure if any vegetables will vibe well with each other? Add onion and garlic and soup it up.
