How to make it

  • In a large saucepan, cook peas, onion, sugar, carrot, lettuce and mint in chicken broth over medium-low heat until peas are tender. If the mixture becomes too thick, add a bit of water.
  • Once the peas are tender, discard the mint and cool the soup.
  • Process the soup through a blender until smooth.
  • In a microwave safe container heat the soup until it is warm enough to melt the butter and stir in the cream and butter.
  • Prior to serving, separate soup into four individual bowls and reheat in microwave (to avoid burning the soup in a saucepan -- nothing worse than burnt pea soup, not to mention the smell when you're having company!).
  • Serve each bowl of soup with a 1-oz. shot of Sherry in either a snifter or a shot glass.
  • Instruct guests to pour the Sherry into the soup prior to eating it.

    Very nice, a lot like my own pea soup with mint, but different in several ways. Thanks for the recipe. Pea soup is my second favorite in the world, after lentils!
