Sweet Pea Soup is a bright variation to the normal Pea Soup. Using fresh peas instead of dried, it is a bright and fresh soup.
No matter the season this soup is a light soup that is perfect for any season. In the winter, you can use frozen green peas and in the summer you can use fresh seasonal green peas. Either way this soup is just as delicious. The mint and lemon makes this soup so bright and fresh tasting.
Soup doesn’t only have to be reserved for the winter Most of us have air conditioners right so we can still enjoy a bowl of hot soup, even in the summer. Here are some delicious soups you can enjoy in any season.
