Description

Pea soup is a rich and creamy traditional and nostalgic favorite. Grandma used to have a pot of this cooking when you came over to visit. This Fresh Pea Soup with Bacon and Mint is a hearty twist on a traditional favorite. It combines the sweet and creamy layers of fresh peas with the salty layers of bacon and the tart and aromatic layers of fresh mint. We hope you enjoy this dish!

Ingredients

80 grams bacon (sliced ​​)
1 shallots
olive oil
250 grams fresh peas (or 1 kg. pea pods)
3/4 liter milk
fresh mint
1 teaspoon corn starch
50 grams fresh peas (for decoration)

Directions

1In a pan, fry the bacon cut in small pieces.
2Remove bacon from skillet, and add the shallot cut in small pieces with a teaspoon of olive oil. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
3Add the milk. When it starts boiling, add the peas and 3/4 of the bacon, cook for 15 minutes.
4 It is important to keep the liquid at the boiling point so that the peas remain green. Dilute a teaspoon of cornstarch with a little bit of soup, pour into the pan, and cook for about 5 minutes. Mix the soup to get a fairly fine texture. Optionally, sieve the soup to remove pea skins.
5Pour the soup in bowls.
6Garnish with bacon, mint leaves, raw peas, a little olive oil, and Espelette pepper.
