This pea and mint soup comes with a handful of crispy bacon and crumbled goats’ cheese on top. It’s a great, healthy lunch and tasty minty twist on a classic pea soup recipe.
The best thing about this soup is that on top of being delicious, it is so quick to make – so you can have your new favourite soup ready on the table in just 15 minutes! Just boil the frozen peas and mint leaves together, and boil them into a smooth purée. Season to taste, and to top it all off, add a dollop of crème fraîche into the serving bowls and decorate with a mint leaf. For a vegetarian option, serve the soup with crumbled goats cheese instead of bacon.
