Edible flower ice cubes
To make this chilled soup extra special, freeze edible petals and flowers, such as viola, rose, borage, nasturtium and pansy, into ice cubes. These will keep for up to 2 months in the freezer. You can also add them to cocktails.
Put all the ingredients, except the oil, pea shoots and ice cubes, into a food processor with a good pinch of salt and pepper and blitz, adding enough water to get a soupy consistency. Taste, and add a little more vinegar and seasoning if necessary. Chill for up to 24 hrs, or at least 2 hrs.
To serve, divide between shallow soup bowls, float a few ice cubes in each bowl (see tip, below) and add
a scattering of pea shoots and a drizzle of oil before serving.
