Chilled Minty Pea Soup

Chilled minty pea soup can be served as mini soup shooters or in your finest bone China. The recipe is that easy to adapt.

Chilled Minty pea Soup in shooter glasses with a Parmesan crisp on top, is what I served at a cocktail party recently. Contrary to what I wanted to believe, everyone fell in love with this soup at a recent cocktail party that I catered for.  Not a single serving came back. So definitely a winning recipe for me.

We are in the middle of Braai Season and almost every meal is cooked around the open fire. I tell you, after 1 week, I seriously need to detox with something light and fresh and this Chilled Minty Pea Soup is going to be on my menu for sure. Just look how beautiful in an old vintage plate. A real girly kind of dish!

This is a typical cream soup, I think you could easily replace the peas with asparagus or even artichokes, the basics stay the same.
