Whirled Peas

No it is not World Peace - it is whirled pea soup!   Use fresh or frozen peas to make this quick soup.

1 Shallot diced
2 packages of frozen peas - 24 oz 
3 cups of Chicken Broth - you can substitute vegetarian or vegan

Saute the shallot in 1 tablespoon of EVOO and 1 tablespoon of butter. Do not brown
add peas and broth and cook until the peas are tender - about 5 - 10 minutes.  Use an immersion blender and puree the soup but do not make it like baby food,  A little texture is great.

Add seasoning to taste.  Serve with crusty bread and a dollop of sour cream or Greek Yogurt.  You can also top with some sliced scallions.
