DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the butter in a large saucepan, add the leeks and onion, and cook over medium-low heat for 5 to 10 minutes, until the onion is tender.
  • Add the chicken stock, increase the heat to high, and bring to a boil.
  • Add the peas and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until the peas are tender. (Frozen peas will take only 3 minutes.)
  • Off the heat, add the salt, and pepper.
  • *Puree the soup in batches: place 1 cup of soup in a blender, place the lid on top, and puree on low speed.
  • With the blender still running, open the venthole in the lid and slowly add more soup until the blender is three-quarters full.
  • Pour the soup into a large bowl and repeat until all the soup is pureed.
  • Whisk in the creme fraiche and chives and taste for seasoning.
  • Serve hot with garlic croutons.
