    Fresh green peas are a delight and this is the perfect way to prepare them. If fresh are not available, frozen is fine - but thaw them first.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 2 medium eschallots (or small onions), finely chopped
    • 2 cups (500ml) water
    • 3 cups freshly shelled green peas
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 3 tablespoons thickened cream (optional)

    Directions

    1. Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Cook the eschallots until soft and translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the water and peas. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until the peas are tender, 12 to 18 minutes.
    2. Puree the soup in batches in a blender or food processor. Strain back into the saucepan, stir in the cream if using, and reheat. Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.
