Nice bright green colour with garlicky flavour. Mint though used only as garnish lends a fresh taste to this soup. Do not miss out on adding pepper as it really perks up the flavour of the soup.

Fresh Green Peas used in this healthy recipe imparts a lovely taste and adds a nice thick body to the soup. A must make during green peas season.
