Green Pea + Mint Chilled Soup

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 cups coarsely chopped onion
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup crème fraiche, for garnish

DIRECTIONS

Melt butter in a large pot uncovered over medium heat. Add onion and 2 teaspoons salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.

Add broth and water, bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in peas and return to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in rough chopped parsley and mint. Puree soup in a blender or using an immersion blender, until very smooth. Transfer to a clean bowl and stir in lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Chill soup in refrigerator for 1-2 hours or overnight.

Serve chilled in soup bowls and garnish with crème fraiche, and pea shoots.
