Kittencal's Fresh Pea Soup (Vegetarian)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

Except for the addition of the whipping cream which is only optional there is very little fat content in this soup --- you may also make this using frozen peas and chicken broth may be used in place of vegetable broth, this makes a wonderful soup with beautiful colour, if you are a garlic lover then increase to 2 tablespoons :)
