Delicious And Healthy Pea & Mint Soup Recipe

pea and mint soup

The first time I tried the pea & mint soup was many years ago at Bel & The Dragon in Reading. I immediately fell in love with both the soup and the restaurant, making the goody at home every now and then ever since. Green peas and fresh peppermint are such a great combination, very light and filling at the same time. Like all the other recipes I share, this one is very easy so why not to give it a go?

To serve 2 will need:

  • 1 bag green peas, frozen
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic glove, crashed
  • 800 ml veggie stock
  • 1 cup of mint leaves, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. plant oil
  • 2tbsp. thick yogurt

Sauté onion and garlic for a few minutes. Add vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Add peas, simmer for 10 minutes. Add fresh mint and lemon juice. Pour the soup in a food processor and whizz until smooth. Serve with  yogurt and pepper.
