Author: KitchenNostalgia
Ingredients
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 medium onion (or 1/3 cup white part of leek), chopped
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 3 cups green peas , fresh or frozen
  • 5 fresh mint leaves , sliced (or a pinch of dry thyme)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar , or to taste
  • salt and black pepper , to taste
Instructions
  1. Melt the butter in a large pot and saute the onion or leeks over medium high heat until they soften, about 5 minutes. Add the vegetable stock, increase the heat to high and bring to a boil.
  2. Add the peas and the mint. When the soup returns to a boil, reduce the heat to medium. Simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until the peas are tender enough to puree (fork mashable).
  3. Puree the soup in small batches in a blender until very smooth. To make it even smoother, pass it through a sieve (optional).
  4. Add the sugar, salt and pepper and taste to see if the soup needs salt.
