Minty Soup

Green Peas and Mint Soup

This unusual combination of green peas and mint may surprise you, but this is one of the most appreciated recipes that I make. And it is so easy to prepare too!! The wealth of this soup lies in the fibre-rich green peas which help to decrease blood cholesterol levels.


3/4 cup fresh green peas
1/4 cup chopped onions
1 tsp finely chopped garlic
1 tsp oil
salt and black pepper (kalimirch) powder to taste

For serving


  1. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan and sauté the onions for a few seconds.
  2. Add the garlic and sauté for a few more seconds.
  3. Add the peas along with 2 cups of water and salt and bring it to a boil.
  4. Simmer till the peas are cooked.
  5. Cool and purée in a blender.
  6. Reheat, adjust the salt and add the pepper.
  7. Serve hot topped with the chopped mint and grated carrots.
