I always thought pea soup smelled, and looked delicious, but the truth is I have never tasted any that I actually liked. However, it’s been so long since I tried some, so I decided to make this minty pea spring soup for my family. The results… my 2 year old ate half a bowl, my husband thought it was just ok (after he shaked on plenty of red pepper flakes), and I could barely get the first spoonful down. What can I say, we aren’t a pea soup kind of family.
But I do consider it a semi-success, because I got my toddler to eat a very healthy green lunch. OK, so it wasn’t just the taste that he liked, I may have used a trick on my currently obsessed with Spiderman little boy… I piped some plain yogurt in the shape of a spiderweb… and told him Spiderman put it there (I know I’m so bad). But its for the greater good. Besides, with great power comes great responsibility. Decorating… my superpower.
