Minted Green Pea and Buttermilk Soup

Donna Prizgintas | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 8 people


Serving tip: Serve this first course with a lush salad of baby greens, dressed with olive oil and champagne vinegar; top with toasted pecans.

  1. Heat oil or butter in a large pot or Dutch oven. Sauté onion on low heat until softened. Add peas, mint, parsley, and broth, stirring well. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, for 20 minutes.
  2. Working in batches, purée in a blender until smooth. Again working in batches, press soup through a fine sieve, discarding pea fibers. Add buttermilk to strained soup, plus salt and pepper to taste. Chill. Serve with a sprig of mint.
