Found this recipe a few years back when I was desperately trying to use up a surplus of frozen green peas. This soup recipe is perfect for a light and lazy summer meal and quick to prepare. Garnish each serving with a mint leaf if desired.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute onion, celery and garlic in the olive oil for a few minutes until vegetables soften.
  2. Add frozen peas, lettuce and broth. Heat until very hot but not boiling, then add milk, reduce heat and simmer covered 15 minutes.
  3. After 15 minutes, transfer the soup mixture into a blender (or use an immersion blender), add the mint and parsley and process until smooth.
  4. Stir in the salt and white pepper, nutmeg, sour cream and butter. Blend soup mixture well by hand. Heat through and serve with a smile.

Cookgirl, once more you provided just what I was looking for! This is another soup my husband, daughter and I loved at La Cave wine bar in Dublin, and husband requested it the minute we got home. Add fresh bread and butter, and what a lovely meal!
