Pea soup recipe

IMG_4723.jpg

I live in Britain. Therefore, no matter what time of the year, it’s almost always cold! However, there comes a positive from this: soup. You have every excuse to spend a dull afternoon cooking up something delicious in the kitchen. And then, in the evening, you can snuggle up next to the fire with a book in hand while sipping your warm, cosy soup. Absolute bliss.

This pea soup is incredibly warming and revitalising. Serve with your favourite bread or even dollop a spoonful over some pasta for something different.
