    1. Simple and fast is key for after school snacks that don't involve mess or prepackaged foods every day.

  2. I need to try this. My mint went wild this year and I have such an abundance. I need to find lots of ways to use it up.

  4. This is interesting! The only way I can eat peas is to mix them up in mashed potatoes.. not the healthiest way.

  7. Peas are the one vegetable I have to blend up into foods to get my family to eat. I would love this soup, unfortunately my kids would not. Of course that means more for me!

  11. Wow this seems very quick and easy. I just worry my picky eater would think (in her words) it's "disgusting" before she tasted it. I would have to cook it without he seeing peas are in it.

    1. Since you aren't bringing the peas to a full boil (that would cook them a bit and change the texture and "cook" the freshness out of the mint), it really is super quick!
