Easy And Healthy Green Summer Soup (Vegan)

This Easy and Healthy Summer Soup is exactly what you need on a hot summer day. Made with a few simple ingredients like edamame beans, green beans, peas, red onions, herbs and the secret ingredient that makes this recipe stand out from any other soup recipes, Jasmine tea. 
Yes, you read that right. There’s actually jasmine tea in this soup and let me tell you it tastes absolutely amazing. The light, flowery taste of the jasmine tea creates the most amazing foundation for all the other flavours in the soup.
