<p>This soup is quite special to us, because the process of creating this soup already began few months ago, when we planted those delicious peas. The recipe is simple, quick and comforting. It's perfect for a healthy midweek lunch or a starter. You can also make it with fresh or frozen peas, so it's great in all the seasons. We like to eat it plain, with sour cream or we add small pieces of grilled bacon in the winter. mmm, delicious!</p>
Dice the onions. Set a saucepan over a medium high heat, add the olive oil and the diced onions. Slowly fry for about 10 minutes on a lower heat. Add diced garlic clove, peas and baking soda. Cook for about 15 minutes. Add the lemon zest, lemon juice and 2 cups of boiling water, season to taste.
Transfer the pea soup to a blender, add the fresh mint and blend until you get a velvety texture. Serve with sour cream, fresh mint or bread, grilled bacon or even poached fish.
