This unusual combination of green peas and mint may surprise you, but this is one of the most appreciated recipes that I make. And it is so easy to prepare too!! The wealth of this soup lies in the fibre-rich green peas and which help to decrease blood cholesterol levels.

excellent soup! Liked the blend of mint and peas.. used carrots for garnish.. absolutely loved it. I did not keep the mint leaves as-is, instead I blended it along with peas.. it was thick, well blended and smooth soup.
