Fab! I know the title says 'Minty' but I don't think that's really the important part of this recipe, and from the sounds of other reviews it doesn't sound like everyone else does either. I couldn't get hold of mint but I did have some fresh sage, so I added just a smidge of that - not too much as it's very strong. I've not sat down to a bowlful yet as I'll be eating it for my lunches this week, but I've had a few spoonfuls and it's delicious! So easy as well. I was cooking it on the side while I was making tonight's dinner. I do agree that you should get a good stock cube though (try Kallo Organic) as you need something to compliment rather than overpower the delicate pea and potato flavours.

What a nice soup to make, enjoyed it but added mint sauce instead of the fresh mint, nice with some crusty bread and butter.

Mmm, very bland. I bought good stock but probably put too much liquid in it. I also found it too potatoey.

Very, very nice, couldn't get fresh mint, didn't have dried so followed tip of stirring in a little mint sauce. It was lovely, comforting and just what was required on a frosty Saturday lunch.

swapped the onion for a leek, softened in a bit of butter, and omitted the mint as i hate minty peas. a good, tasty and filling soup.
