Notes

  • Saute the peas and herbs for a few minutes before adding the water. It will bring out the flavors of these ingredients and the soup will taste a lot more flavorful.
  • If you can't find fresh herbs, use dry ones. However, adding fresh ones will give a very nice bright green color to the soup.
