#181 The Case of Minted Pea Soup

Welcome the colour and flavour of summer!

1/4 cup chopped onion
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 potato, chopped
4 cups water
2 rounded teaspoons (for 2 cups) vegetable bouillon powder
1 cup fresh or frozen peas
2 cups snow peas
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
salt
pepper
fresh chives (optional)

Sauté the onion in the olive oil for 2 min.

Add the potato, water and vegetable bouillon powder, and simmer covered for 15 min. or until the potato is tender.

Add the peas and snow peas, and bring back to a boil.

Stir in the mint leaves.

Purée.

Season to taste with salt and pepper.

I serve my bowls of soup topped with chopped, fresh chives.

Serves 4.
