ABOUT Green Peas and mint soup RECIPE

I have a lot of kids in my neighbourhood and all the mothers including myself have a constant worry of making them eat the seasonal vegetables and fruits. This time, inspired from a buffet menu in a restaurant that I visited for a conference, I made a soup out of green peas and mint, with of course the changes in ingredients to suite our little taste buds and palates. A bowl full of goodness of whole milk, fresh peas and mint is sure to be loved by kids for their break time during play on a winter morning and serves a good appetizer for adult lunch too. Thickness of soup can be adjusted as per your choice and if you dont prefer having mint leaves in between, the can be pureed with peas.
