Why I Love This Recipe

I feel like this is a good year-round soup.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 large shallot, minced (about 3 Tbsp)
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cups low sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth (for vegetarian option)
2 sprigs of mint, about 6 inches in total stem length
1 pound of frozen petite peas (available at Trader Joe's)
1/4 cup heavy cream
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Crème fraîche for garnish
Strips of fresh mint for garnish


1. Cook the shallots in butter: In a medium saucepan (2 1/2 to 3 quart) melt the butter on medium heat. Add shallots and cook until softened, but not browned, a couple minutes.

2. Add broth and mint, then peas: Add the broth and mint sprigs to the shallots, increase the heat and bring to a boil. Add the frozen peas and salt and pepper to taste. Return to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until the peas are just tender, 3-5 minutes.

3. Discard the mint and purée the soup in a blender until completely smooth.

4. Blend in the cream. Taste and correct seasoning. Reheat to serve warm, or chill to serve cold. Serve garnished with crème fraîche and mint strips.
