Ingredients

  • 1 1/2

    cups chopped onion

  • 1

    tablespoon unsalted butter

  • 6

    cups shelled fresh or frozen peas

  • 5

    cups low-salt chicken broth

  • 1

    tablespoon chopped fresh mint leaves

  • Freshly-ground white pepper to taste

  • 2/3

    cup well-shaken buttermilk

  • Toasted French bread for accompaniment, if desired

Directions

In a saucepan cook onion in butter, covered, over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes, or until tender. Add peas and broth and simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes, or until peas are tender. Stir in mint. In a blender purée soup until smooth and pour through a coarse sieve back into pan. Heat soup over moderate heat until hot and remove pan from heat. Add white pepper and salt, to taste, and stir in all but 4 teaspoons buttermilk. Divide soup between 4 bowls and gently spoon remaining buttermilk onto each serving. This recipe yields 4 servings, about 6 cups.
