3 cups green/snap beans, cut into 2 cm pieces 300 g
2 zucchini, cut into 2 cm pieces 260 g
2 1/2 cups frozen peas 300 g

6 tbsp fresh mint, chopped, plus some leaves to garnish 18 g
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsp olive oil 45 mL
6 cups vegetable broth 1.5 L

85 mL Mint Sauce 1/3 cup
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.


  1. Prepare the vegetables. Peel the potatoes and dice them coarsely into 2 cm pieces. Chop the leeks and the mint leaves; mince the garlic. Coarsely cut the green beans and zucchini into 2 cm pieces.
  2. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Sweat the leeks 2-3 min, then add the garlic, potatoes, green beans, and zucchini. Sauté 4-5 min with occasional stirring. Pour in the vegetable broth, then season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook 15 min, until the vegetables are softened.
  3. Meanwhile, boil or steam the peas in a separate pot of salted boiling water for a couple of minutes. Add the cooked peas to the other vegetables when they are done, then add the chopped mint leaves.
  4. Purée the soup in a blender or food processor. Cover and chill thoroughly in the refrigerator (at least 2 hours).
  5. Adjust the seasoning before serving. Garnish each bowl with a spoonful of Mint Sauce, a dollop of yogurt, and a few mint leaves.


The bisque keeps up to 5 days in the refrigerator or up to 3 months in the freezer.
