I can’t resist it. Maybe I’m just too eager with the blender, but I love making soup. It’s so satisfying to have it there, waiting in the fridge, all fresh and good for you. So when I dug this recipe from Lullaby for Pies out of my favourites, I decided to give it a go.
I have an obsession with mint at the moment. It’s one of the easiest herbs to grow, indoors or outdoors, and doesn’t need full sunlight. Even if it is just on the windowsill, there is no excuse for dried mint – fresh is just unbeatable.
Not only that, but soup isn’t just for the winter months (although this one would taste good and thick with the addition of potato in cold weather). The fresh, green flavours of this soup make it perfect for the not-so-sunny days we get here in Britain.

Making the soup was a complete doddle. Aside from my forgetting to add the mint before blending, it was easy to follow with a simple, refreshing flavour. Completely different from any soup I’ve had before. Highly recommended for a light lunch, or perhaps top with some parmesan if you’re feeling indulgent.
What do you make of it? Give it a go – I’d love to hear from you.
