Pea and Mint Soup

Another bright and colourful soup!  Visually vibrant and a fragrant soup which can be served hot or cold, depending upon the seasons!  Green peas are one of the most nutritious leguminous vegetables, rich in health benefiting phyto-nutrients, minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants.   The addition of mint lifts the flavour of the peas and gives a fresh taste to the soup.

Low fat, high fibre, low carb and full of nutrition, the soup is a bowl of goodness! Plus I like the bright colour!  You may need sunglasses to look at it…
