Cream of Green Pea Soup with Fresh Mint

Mint and green peas are one of my favorite spring flavor combinations! I love combining them in a refreshing salad, a creamy dipping sauce or a flavorful soup like this Cream of Green Pea Soup with Fresh Mint. Did you know that green peas are great to detoxify your body and feel full & satisfied longer? They are super high in plant-based protein and dietary fiber, as well as essential minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc and manganese. What’s more, green peas are packed with vitamin A & K, both important for strong bones, healthy eyes and clear skin. Enough reasons to treat yourself to this delicious & nutritious soup!
