Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small medium yellow onion diced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 26 ounces frozen peas
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice optional
  • fresh dill optional

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil in a medium heavy bottomed dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, seasoning with salt and pepper until it is translucent, 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Pour in the vegetable stock and turn up the heat. Bring to a simmer.
  • Add in the frozen peas and cook until just warmed, about 3 to 5 minutes. Be careful not to overcook. Remove from heat when they are warmed, and still bright green.
  • Use an imersion blender to blend or transfer to a blender and blend until smooth. Taste and add more salt and pepper as desired and add the lemon juice to really bring out the brightness of the peas.
