The green curry sauce gives a spicy lift to the soup, and the arugula balances the sweetness of the peas with its subtle flavour. The blender works best because it breaks down the pea skins, making a smooth purée. The food mill is another good option. If you use the food processor make sure that you keep processing until it is as smooth as possible. Serve in chilled mugs.
