Directions

Step 1

Bring the 4 cups water, sugar and salt to a boil. Immerse the green peas in the boiling water no longer than 2 to 3 minutes. Plunge peas into ice water so that they can chill as quickly as possible. Drain.

Step 2

Puree the peas in a food processor or blender. Press the puree through a fine mesh sieve with the back of a spoon, or pass it through a food mill. You should end up with about 2 cups of puree.

Step 3

Blend the pea puree and vegetable stock in small batches. If you prefer a thicker soup add more puree. If you prefer a thinner soup, add more vegetable stock. Add lemon. Transfer to an airtight container and chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Step 4

To serve, season the soup with salt to taste. Ladle the soup among the serving bowls and garnish with a dollop of crème fraiche.
