If fresh late spring peas are available, substitute for the frozen peas. This chilled soup tastes of springtime, and makes a perfect first course before an elegant ham dinner of Glazed Ham with Dried Cherry Caramelized Onions.

  • 2 green onions (chopped)
  • 1/8 teaspoon thyme

  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk
  • salt (to taste)
  • black pepper (to taste)
  • nutmeg (freshly grated to garnish)
  • carrot (shredded to garnish)
