    James Martin's Pea & watercress soup with croutons

    July is a pea-lovers dream as plants literally drip with pods, and replenish almost as fast as you can pick them. James is a regular at the BBC Good Food Shows, and was a sell out at the Show back in June 2017 where he cooked this recipe live on stage.

    As well as succulent peas, this recipe also uses shallots, garlic and parsley from your veg patch.
