Yet another green soup! The zucchini (courgette) gives the thickness of the soup and the pea gives the deep green colour. The mint flavouring lifts it. All together these three ingredients make a lovely comfort soup. It might be nice cold, but have not tried it cold yet. The Chief taster loved it and was requested for lunch the next day!
This is just so simple to make but full of flavour…my type of cooking! There is nothing like a hearty soup for comfort food..okay, apart from chocolate and yummy cupcakes…I love having soup for lunch as it is quick, nutritious and keeps me going all afternoon during a busy day. Let alone low in carbs and full of goodness!
