If you don't have fresh peas, frozen petite baby peas will work just as well. This is a nice summer soup for a light meal with a salad.

How to Make Mint and Fresh Pea Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Gently heat the oil and butter in a large saucepan, add the chopped onion and cook on a gentle heat for 10 minutes or until the onion is soft but not brown.
  2. Add the garlic and cook for a further 3 minutes.
    Add 3/4 of the peas, the chopped mint leaves, and 3/4 stock. Cover the saucepan with a tight fitting lid and cook on a medium boil for 10 minutes.
  3. Blend the soup in a food processor, you will have a thick puree. Return the puree to the pan, season with salt and pepper and add the remaining peas and stock.
  4. Cook for a further 5 minutes.

    Serve with crusty, fresh bread.
  5. If using Parmesan cheese place a small mound in the center of the bowl and pour the soup around. Drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil.

    This soup is also delicious cold, but not chilled.
