DIRECTIONS

  • NOTE: if using frozen peas, thaw first.
  • In a heavy soup pot, melt the butter but do not burn. Add the shallots and cook for about 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add 2 cups stock or water and the green peas, season with salt and pepper.
  • Cover and simmer the soup for approximately 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 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.
  • Strain the soup back into the soup pot, stir in the heavy cream (if using), and heat through WITHOUT boiling.
  • Season with salt and pepper and serve hot with homemade croutons and fresh chervil garnished on top.
