    kiwidutch's Note:

    Posted for Zaar World Tours: A chilled soup for those sultry summer evenings. Please note that if using frozen peas then the amount required will be half that of the fresh peas. Vegetable stock can be substituted for the chicken stock if a vegetarian version is required. Cook time INCLUDES chilling time. REGION: France.

      When I first saw the word 'canned' in the title of this recipe, I thought, "No way am I using canned peas in this!" And then, alas, no way did I have to! Used frozen peas this time around, & used the suggested vegetable stock since I was serving it to a couple of vegetarians! I enjoyed the taste of this chilled soup ~ A nice change from the usual soup! Thanks for another GREAT recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's PAC]
