Lovely fresh tasting soup. Went down very well. Very slightly on the thin side so I would suggest maybe 550 / 600 ml stock. Thanks Good food!

A really fab soup. Made it while I had breakfast this morning and took it to work in a flask for lunch. Can't believe something so quick and easy could be so good!

I'm off sick pregnant with a cold. Needed quick non-tiring nourishment. This has hit the spot. Really good. Really quick. I feel nourished. I didn't have minted peas. Didn't matter. Still yummy. Thanks. I feel the vitamin c working it's magic already.

Delicious, simple and healthy!! I make this to take to work almost every day for lunch. Surprisingly filling, while still being light.

Delicious, cheap, quick, healthy and filling! I used 5 spring onions, 2 stock cubes, fresh mint and added some leftover celery to use it up. Would go well with toasted ciabatta rubbed with garlic.
