Directions

1. In a medium or large soup pot, add all the vegetables and spices: asparagus, green peas, onion, garlic, potato, and black pepper. Cover with vegetable stock and bring to a simmer.

2. Cook for 10 minutes, over medium heat, until vegetables are cooked through.

3. Meanwhile, cut bread sticks and brush with olive oil. Toast in the oven for 2 minutes at 440°F (230°C), until golden.

4. Transfer the soup into a blender, drain half the broth and keep it for later. Add mint and process to obtain a smooth soup, adjust seasoning if necessary. If it’s too thick, add more broth and process until you get the desired consistency.

5. Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with seeds and peppercorns, serve with toasted bread sticks. For the to-go version, divide into air-tight containers.
