As they say in France, ‘a lunch without soup is like a house without a front door’. Delicate cream soup of green peas and cream is a classic dish of the French cuisine.

Rich, thick, nutritious and easily digestible. And it is very simple to make it: mix boiled green peas with butter, bled cream and spices until smooth, then combine with the broth. 

This fragrant spring-time green soup tastes spicy sweet and looks incredibly appetising: as if just from a French restaurant. And if you add slices of bacon or a piece of juicy chicken, you will get a rich and hearty home-made dish for every day.

Light Cream Soup with Green Peas, Cream, and Mint

Basil and mint give the soup a rich spicy aroma and refreshing taste. A pinch of sugar keeps the colour of the peas bright, not allowing it to darken in the process of cooking. And cream and butter will give the dish new flavours and a special delicate texture. Cream soup tastes best with croutons, pumpkin seeds or crackers.
