Hearty pea and mint soup recipe

I love making soups. They are so easy to make, and are great for a healthy winter lunch. Here's my first (and easiest) soup recipe. Many of you have tried out the winter warmer tray bake and loved it. I've received lovely feedback including 'It was yummy' and 'We really enjoyed it'.


Let me know what you think of this soup- I love hearing from you and your cooking!
