Springtime Pea Soup

Springtime Pea Soup


2 – 12 oz packages Flav-R-Pac frozen peas, thawed
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 cup vegetable or chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons freshly chopped mint

Heat a large, heavy bottom soup pot and drizzle with olive oil. Saute celery and onions until tender. Add garlic and continue to saute until fragrant, 2-3 minutes. Add peas and stock, bring to a boil and reduce to simmer.

Simmer for 20 minutes. SLOWLY add heavy cream and bring back to simmer, but do not let it boil. Add mint and remove from heat. Using an immersion blender, puree to desired consistency.

Serve with croutons or toasted bread and enjoy!
