Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over low heat. Add the 4 chopped green onions, and cook until softened, but not brown. Stir in the peas, vegetable stock, and 3 tablespoons of chopped fresh mint. Increase heat to medium, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat back to low, cover, and let simmer for about 30 minutes. If you are using frozen peas, 15 minutes is enough.
  2. Using a large slotted spoon, remove about 3 tablespoons of the peas, and set aside for garnish. Pour the soup into a blender or food processor along with the milk, and puree until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Throw in a pinch of sugar if desired. Allow the soup to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until chilled.
  3. Pour the soup into 4 serving bowls. Swirl 1 tablespoon of light cream into each one, then garnish with reserved peas and sprigs of mint.

The soup was somewhat thin, but very refreshing with a minty flavor. Instead of the whipping cream, I put a dollop of fat-free sour cream on top. I'll make this again, but will half the milk and broth. Very easy!

This was certainly inexpensive and easy to make but I found the mint flavour overpowering. I served it hot with warm crusty rolls. Maybe when it's cool it tastes different? Not sure if I am willing to try again.

We made a double batch of this soup for an appetizer for my parents-in-law and grandparents-in-law, and uncle. Everybody loved it and asked for the recipe.

tastes like peas and mint... that's it. Nothing special at all. No overpowering taste. Just imagine eating peas and little hint of mint with it. I was disappointed.

105 in Amarillo yesterday and this soup was perfect paired with a chilled garden vegetable sandwich prepared on hearty dark pumperknickel. Though I have no sweet tooth, I recommend a bit more sugar or even mint jelly in lieu.

This was really mediocre. The texture was thin and somewhat greasy. The taste wasn't awful but it was lacking something - it was just blah.
