This pretty, bright green Chilled Sweet Pea and Mint Soup is perfect for a spring party or an easy and delicious light meal on a warm day.

Chilled Sweet Pea and Mint Soup

I’m delighted that the warm spring weather is finally here in New England and that it is now time for warm weather dishes. Last week, I shared one of my family’s favorite pasta salads, this delicious Bacon Arugula Tomato and White Bean Pasta Salad. Another of my favorite warm weather dishes is chilled soups and today I’m sharing this wonderful Chilled Sweet Pea and Mint Soup.

This Chilled Sweet Pea and Mint Soup has a gorgeous vibrant green color, perfect for spring, and is light, refreshing, creamy and delicious.

Chilled Sweet Pea and Mint Soup

I came across the original version of this Chilled Sweet Pea and Mint Soup in this month’s issue of Southern Living magazine. I love chilled soups and the combination of peas and mint, so I knew I had to make it. This Chilled Sweet Pea and Mint Soup was so easy to make and turned out beautifully.

The peas and mint complement each other nicely, sautéed leeks give the flavor a nice depth, and the addition of sour cream gives the soup a nice creaminess. Altogether this is a delicious, light, yet satisfying soup with a beautiful bright and inviting green color.

This Chilled Sweet Pea and Mint Soup looks so pretty served in small glasses and would add a nice pop of spring color to a buffet for a Memorial’s Day barbeque, a graduation party or other spring event. Guests can easily hold the glasses and enjoy the soup while standing and mingling. If you do serve the soup this way, be sure to nestle the glasses in a shallow bowl filled with ice to keep the soup nice and chilled.

This pretty soup would also make an elegant first course for a sit down luncheon or dinner party. This Chilled Sweet Pea and Mint Soup is also wonderful for a light meal on a warm spring day or anytime!

  6. Never heard of this kind of soup! Looks like something great for the summer. My dad is a huge fan of soup. I bet he would love this soup!

  8. What a great way to keep eating soup during the warmer weather months. I usually don’t make soup during the summer, but a chilled soup would be great.

  9. This sounds so cool and refreshing! We are trying not to use our air conditioner so it sounds even better than usual. 🙂

  10. Joy,
    This soup looks wonderful! I’ve made something similar with buttermilk, but I think the sour cream would be even better.
