Chilled Pea Soup with Mint



I'm getting through these hot and humid summer days with lots of salads and chilled soups like this one, inspired by a recent trip to France. Whenever I'm in Toulouse, I love eating lunch at the Victor Hugo market, famous for its fresh produce and local products. Above the market, on the second floor, are five restaurants turning these best quality ingredients into delicious food. I had previously enjoyed a good Salade Landaise and was hoping to do it again, but we arrived at the end of the lunch service and there were only two options left for our first course. So, unexpectedly, I found myself eating a chilled pea soup with mint on a hot summer day in the south of France. I was delightfully surprised and this is my effort to re-create it.
