2 tablespoons olive oil

1 medium onion, finely chopped 2 cloves garlic, minced

4 cups fresh or frozen green peas 4 cups vegetable broth

A handful of fresh mint leaves Salt and pepper, to taste

Optional: Crème fraîche or yogurt, for garnish

Optional: Fresh lemon juice, for a zesty twist


Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. 

Add the chopped onion and sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes.

Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute until fragrant.

Stir in the green peas and pour in the vegetable broth.

Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. If using fresh peas, then simmer until they are just tender.

Add the fresh mint leaves to the pot.

Using an immersion blender (or a regular blender, working in batches), puree the soup until smooth.

Season with salt and pepper to taste. If desired, add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice for a zesty flavor.

Serve the soup hot, garnished with a dollop of crème fraîche or yogurt, if desired.
