Hey kids, we’re having peas. come on mom, we had vegetables this week.
I pulverized them into baby food. gross and gross.
Yeah, and I added mint too. what, peas aren’t candy.
Best part. we don’t have to eat it?
No, it’s cold. omg, give me anything but that.
Experts predict this hot weather we’re experiencing is just the tip of the melting iceberg for summer – global weirding they call it.
Although chilled soup is hardly al-gore-ing it, this simple go-green doesn’t take much irrigation or effort and delivers a satisfying summertime starter or ender. You’ll impress yourself, I promise – a handful of ingredients, refrigerator ready, and a good veggie fix that the kids will object to at first and then eat up.
I was inspired, no compelled, to recreate this porridge served at a small cafe within a set of fancy shops – sunglasses indoors required. The farm fresh food is humble here to make room for the big LA scene. Our waitress was kind enough to rake the recipe out of the chef for us twice because it seemed too simple to be this good. Really – peas, mint, veg stock & salt. That’s all.
