Pea & Mint Soup

Hello Everyone

I have been reading through my BBC Good Food magazines and on sunday the family decided not to have a sunday roast as we had eaten far to much the day before at the good food show live, so i decided to make pea and mint soup from a recipe out of the magazine.

I had never made a pea and mint soup and was a bit worried that my sister wouldn't enjoy it as she can be a fussy eater, but it went down really well :)

Its something different and ver refreshing after eating a lot of junk food over the weekend!

My mum absolutely loved comparing it to mushy peas and mint sauce at the seaside in the 'good old days'

We ate it with some lovely seed and honey batard loaf from the local shop and it left us nice and full until late evening :)
