This Pea and Mint Soup is a British comfort food classic and maybe the best pea soup recipe out there. Fresh and light with a wonderful sweetness from the peas, this easy soup can be served warm or cold.
Melt butter in a medium pot. Add shallots and cook over medium-high heat for about one minute.
Add frozen peas, bring back to a boil and then simmer for about 4 minutes or until the peas are tender. Season to taste. Let the soup cool a little bit. Remove mint leaves, transfer soup to your blender (or use an immersion blender) and blend until very smooth.
