CREAM OF FRESH PEA SOUP


½ Cup Diced onion, cut by hand

2 ½ Cups Chicken broth

4 Cups Fresh or frozen green peas

Pinch Sugar

3 Tbsps. Unsalted butter

3 Tbsps. Flour

3 Cups Whole milk

¼ tsp. Ground nutmeg

Salt and white pepper to taste

2 Tbsps. Finely minced mint

Garnish: Minced fresh mint or chives

Simmer onion in chicken broth until tender. With broth simmering, stir in peas and a pinch of sugar. Cook 3 minutes more, or until peas are tender. Take care not to overcook!! Keep the color bright green!!

Puree the mixture in a blender until quite smooth. (a Vita-Mix is ideal)

In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the flour and cook another minute, stirring constantly, but not allowing the mixture to brown. Whisk in milk, and cook until bubbly and thickened. Stir in the pureed pea mixture. Add nutmeg, salt and white pepper, and mint.

Serve cold, garnished according to your preference. (For future use, this soup can also be served hot.)

What a nice setting. I have to attend many business dinners all over the US. This looks so peaceful and cozy compared to so many I have to attend. I love it.
