How to Make Chilled Pea Soup

Step-by-Step

  6. Pour in broth, and bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and cook until potatoes are tender about 10 minutes.
  7. Add peas; remove from heat.
  8. In a food processor, puree this mixture in batches until smooth.
  9. Return puree to saucepan and reheat slightly and season with salt and pepper to taste; chill thoroughly.
  10. To serve, add cream, thinning soup to desired consistency; stir in reserved peas.
