Ingredients
  1. 2 teaspoons butter
  2. 1 cup coarsely chopped green onions
  3. 4 cups shelled green peas (about 4 pounds unshelled)
  4. 3 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  5. 2 cups water
  6. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  7. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  8. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  9. 1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
  10. 2 tablespoons thinly sliced mint
  11. Cracked black pepper (optional)
Instructions
  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onions to pan; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add peas, broth, and 2 cups water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until peas are very tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; let stand 15 minutes. Stir in juice, salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  2. Place half of pea mixture in blender; process until smooth. Pour pureed soup mixture into a large bowl. Repeat procedure with remaining pea mixture. Pour half of pureed soup mixture through a sieve over a large bowl, reserving liquid; discard solids. Return liquid to pureed soup mixture. Ladle about 3/4 cup soup mixture into each of 6 bowls; drizzle each with 1/2 teaspoon oil. Sprinkle each serving with 1 teaspoon mint. Garnish with cracked pepper, if desired.
