This bright and fragrant pea and mint soup recipe is a great lunch option but also works well as a starter!

This is a perfect summer soup for a few reasons, the flavour is light and aromatic, it’s quick to make so you aren’t slaving over a hot stove all day, and lastly, it can be served both hot and cold!

Once ladled into bowls we suggested finishing it off with a few swirls of single cream but if you are vegan or lactose intolerant you can skip this step or substitute it for a dairy-free alternative! Olive oil and a dash of cracked black pepper make a great topping too!

You can use both fresh and frozen peas in this recipe, it will make no difference to the taste!
