The Thing for Spring (Sweet Pea, Ginger and Mint Soup)


• 1 lb. fresh peas (or frozen)
• 1 medium shallot, diced
• 2 T fresh ginger, minced
• 1/4 cup fresh mint
• 1 T olive or coconut oil

Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat until hot. Add shallots and cook 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add broccoli, thyme, and pepper, and sauté 5 minutes. Add broth and bring to a boil. Add peas. Cook an additional 5-10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Cool slightly.
Working in batches, puree soup in blender or food processor until smooth and creamy or use immersion blender. Return soup to pot, and heat over low until soup is hot.
