This recipe takes advantage of green peas. Adding sour cream produces a creamy texture and a bit of tang.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Stir in milk; reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 15 minutes or until vegetables are very tender.

Step 2

Place pea mixture in a blender; let stand 5 minutes. Process until smooth. Stir in sour cream and remaining ingredients.

Used fresh peas, and the soup had wonderful flavor! Very rich and creamy, almost foamy. I recommend pureeing the mint in with the other ingredients, and adding a bit more, for stronger mint flavor.

This is a nice soup, pleasant flavors. Made the soup as directed, using frozen peas and fat-free half and half since I didn't have 1% milk. Also used an immersion blender for ease. Added a parmesan rind to the finished soup to soak up some added taste and did not add the salt called for at the end.
