Really nice soup, if I make it again i'll probably use less potato and more pea and mint though, also had to water mine down a little, but will definately make again.

This is so easy to make and so tasty...really filling. I added basil instead of mint as that is what I had in the kitchen...well worth it.

I don't think the mint is that strong a flavour but the soup is tasty nonetheless. Be sure to get a good stock; the rest will look after itself!

I found it a bit bland and not very minty after a handful of leaves
