Perfect pea soup. It's now a good old favourite in our house. The fish fingers are however an acquired taste, personally I think they go well. I did only add one spoonful of pesto. But that's maybe just me.

Gorgeous soup but would use half of the amount of pesto as I found it a little over powering.

Nice soup and the croutons are a good idea. A different way to serve fish fingers , potatoes and peas. Becoming a fave in our house especially with twin two year olds.

I don't really see what all the fuss is about. This soup tastes fine and is fairly comforting but isn't really something to write home about. The fish finger croutons were interesting in the sense that I'd never had them before but also kind of weird. I made this mostly out of curiosity because of all the rave reviews and probably won't make it again.

I was intrigued by all the rave reviews for this and while I agree it was very easy to put together, I wouldn't say it was 'incredibly tasty'.

This was really lovely and healthy and summery - highly recommended! I added some Parmesan for some cheesy goodness. Will definitely cook again!

Absolutely delicious, made made in a flash! I always make too much but it tastes even yummier the second day with a dash more pesto! I ditched the fish finger though, and replaced them with crispy bits of chorizo.
