Green Pea and Potato Soup

I saw this soup on a cooking show a long time ago and I have fiddled with the ingredients until I got a flavour I liked. If you like a thicker soup, use a cup less of water.

This is slightly bland as written, but tastes like a fantastic base for experimenting with with herbs and spices to perk it up - I look forward to experimenting!

This is a good, instant soup (no making stock first) I made it, tasted it, rated it, THEN added My variations. I added a big pinch of dried mint, and 3 slices of cooked crumbled bacon. The colour of this soup is very vivid lime green, and the parmesan really finishes it off well.
