The sweet, earthy flavour of green peas meets the herby accents of basil in this awe-inspiring recipe. We have retained the high fibre content of green peas in this soup by not straining it.
This, along with the restricted use of salt, makes this soup good for those with high blood pressure. Although we have used very little salt, this soup tastes simply too good because of the use of basil, which is the real highlight of this recipe. It enhances the flavour and aroma to a truly unforgettable extent.
