    Uses the freshest green peas you can find. If unavailable, use good quality frozen peas. Don't forget to serve this soup with a bottle of your best boojoelay or a Michelob. From Vegetarian: The Best Ever Recipe Collection.

      NOTE: if using frozen peas, thaw first.

      Add 2 cups stock or water and the green peas, season with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Cover and simmer the soup for approximately 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    5. 5
      When the peas are tender, transfer the soup to a large bowl and using a hand held immersion blender process the soup until very smooth.
    6. 6
      Strain the soup back into the soup pot, stir in the heavy cream (if using), and heat through WITHOUT boiling.
    7. 7
      Season with salt and pepper and serve hot with homemade croutons and fresh chervil garnished on top.
