This verdant soup is just right for ushering in spring—say, at an Easter brunch or Mother’s Day lunch. Frozen peas are a convenient alternative to the fresh variety (no blanching and peeling required). Sour cream lends a subtle tang to the soup. Blanched shaved asparagus, sautéed shrimp, and pan-fried croutons make delightful toppings, fresh dill and Espelette pepper are last-minute seasonings. If you have a mandoline or other adjustable-blade slicer, use it to shave the asparagus paper thin; otherwise a vegetable peeler works well, too.

Ingredients

  • 1 cube chicken bouillon
  • 600 grams frozen peas (or fresh)
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 4 asparagus (green)
  • 2 prawns (large)
  • 2 slices black bread
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • fresh dill
  • Espelette pepper

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, make chicken stock by boiling 1 lt water with the cube of chicken bouillon.
  2. Add the peas and cook for 15 minutes until tender.

  6. Using a mandolin, slice them thinly lengthwise.
  7. In a pot of salted boiling water, cook the sliced ​​asparagus for 2 minutes.
  8. Drain and place them under cold water to stop the cooking process.
  9. Peel the prawns and remove the back vein.

I didn't think that I would like pea soup, but with the prawns and the asparagus, it just all works really well. It’s very flavorful and filling. There’s also the fact that this is so good for you too.
