Minty green peas soup

I first heard about this soup from my mom and dad- they relished this soup at a wedding party. Immediately I got inspired to make it. Here goes the recipe for the minty soup.


Frozen peas- 1lb
water/ vegetable broth- 2/12 cups
chopped mint leaves- 3 tbsp
milk- 2 cups
light whipping cream- 1/2 cup
butter- 4 tbsp
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
fresh mint to garnish


Melt butter in a large saucepan. Stir in the peas, vegetable stock, and 3 tablespoons of chopped fresh mint. Increase heat to medium, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat back to low, cover and let simmer for about 15 minutes.

Remove about 3 tablespoons of the peas, and set aside for garnish. Pour the soup into a blender or food processor along with the milk, and puree until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Throw in a pinch of sugar if desired.

Swirl in 1 tbsp of whipping cream and fresh mint leaves before serving.

The soup can be served either hot or cold.
