PEA & MINTY SOUP

THIS IS SULLY’S FAVOURITE!

Archaeologists have unearthed peas in ancient Chinese tombs. The Chinese believe that their emperor, Shu Nung, discovered peas 5,000 years ago.

He is said to have wandered through the countryside collecting plants suitable for food or medicine.

Potential edibles were fed to a dog, then a servant and, if both survived, the Emperor himself would taste the new food.
