My trials, tribulations and triumphs while attempting to bake my way through Lorraine Pascales book, Baking made Easy, and hopefully proving that yes, it is.

Pea and Mint soup
Peas are definitely the most popular vegetable in our house. We've always got some in and I know that the children will always eat them. So when I made this I thought there would be no problem about everybody enjoying it. No such luck, I don't think they could quite connect the bowl of green to the happy little peas they usually see on their plate. This is a shame because it was really simple to make. Boil peas, blend and serve. The middle is a mint mascarpone made with chopped mint leaves.
Both myself and my husband enjoyed it although I don't think I could have eaten more than the small helping I had. There is only so much of the taste of pea I can take, which is why we usually have some with a lamb chop!
