Peas Broccoli Soup

The past two weeks had been quite hectic. I got a change of project and so, had loads of work at office. Weekends went busy too. Things are getting normal this week and I'm hoping for some relaxation. So, last week, I could spend only little time in the kitchen and didn't get to try anything industrious.

One evening, after a tiring day of work, I made this wonderful soup, thanks to Taste of Pearl City. It was easy to make and very relishing. It had the mild aroma of mint and the goodness of the green vegetables, combined with the flavour of garlic and pepper.


The original recipe can be found here. I followed it almost exactly, but with the following changes:
- I used just one potato, so the soup was light and apt for the evening hour.
- I had only a small amount of peas, so I replaced the rest with about 5 to 6 Broccoli florets. Adding broccoli gave the soup an extra kick and taste.
- I topped the soup with some crispy Croutons and pine nuts.

The soup was itself creamy, but those who would like more richness can add a spoon of cream on top. Along with garlic Baguette and Italian herbs Baguette, we just felt like it was one of the perfect dinner menus. :-)
I'm sending this post as an entry to US Masala's Bookmarked Recipes Event.
