Pea and Mint Soup

Did you know the average Briton eats almost 9000 peas a year? Perhaps there’s a reason your mother always told you to eat them, as they’re packed with slow-releasing carbohydrate, Vitamin C and fibre. They even contain 4.9g protein per 100g! Try them in this simple yet very delicious Pea and Mint Soup.









Serves 4
  • Prep time: 5 minutes
  • Cook time: 10 minutes
  •  1 tbsp olive oil

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
