Curry Coconut and Green Pea Soup

Last week, my mom and dad brought me some beautiful fresh peas they found at the grocery store. I was really excited, since I absolutely love fresh peas, and I wanted to make something that really highlighted its flavour.

This soup has a light curry flavour, but does not overpower the peas itself. Its a light and flavourful dish that is perfect for this time of the year. It can be served hot or cold.
