Sweet Pea Soup



This quick meal is one of my last resorts when there was no time whatsoever for shopping. Of the shelf and prepared in 30 min it satisfies the stomach and the soul.


The sweet pea soup truly carries the sweetness of fresh peas as well as carrots. That’s why it is so refreshing and enjoyable to eat.
