Ingredient notes for pea and mint soup recipe

Vegan Pea and Mint Soup | Ingredients

PEAS– You can use frozen or fresh peas here. If you use frozen peas, make sure you defrost them first.

CAYENNE PEPPER – Omit or reduce the amount of cayenne pepper if you are spice-sensitive or substitute for chilli powder.

GINGER– Fresh grated ginger is best for flavour, but you can substitute for ground ginger if you don’t have fresh on hand.

VEGETABLE BROTH– You can substitute for water but vegetable broth will add more flavour.

COCONUT MILK- Use full-fat coconut milk for the creamiest flavour.
