Pea, Mint and Basil Soup
Posted On February 18, 2016 By Kathryn
There are easy recipes, and then there is this recipe! Taken from my book Skinny Soups, this soup takes a mere 15 minutes to throw together and is utterly delicious. For a more oriental feel, you can use thai basil instead of plain basil, and add a pinch of chilli flakes for some heat. Love!
