Recipe

Minted Pea Soup

  • Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1 teaspoon Essence
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 quart chicken stock
  • 4 cups freshly shelled peas
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
  • Toasted Pita Bread Triangles

Directions

  • In a large, heavy saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onion, Essence, and salt, and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken stock and peas and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered until the peas are tender, about 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and puree with a hand-held immersion blender (or puree in batches in a food processor). Stir in the cream and mint, and serve warm with toasted pita bread triangles.
