Disappointed, it tasted just like chopped up peas. If I try it again, I'll add some gently sweated onions.

My husband didn't like the look of this but was surprised by how good it was. Was asked to make it again the following day.

Quick, easy, filling and absolutely delicious. I too had this warm. I'll wait until the summer finally kicks in before trying it cold.

This is the easiest starter I've ever made and probably the most successful! I must admit I did warm it up as I find cold soup a bit difficult to get my head around but everyone loved and wanted the recipe!
