Green Pea and Asparagus Soup

Despite the fact that it was in the 90s yesterday, I’m sharing a soup recipe.  I know, I know.  So unlike me.  But this warm soup is everything Spring is.

Bright.

Lush.

Light.

Green.

Simply lovely.

Besides, if the 90s stick around, we officially had a 3 day Spring.

The soup is a basically a puree of vegetable broth, sautéed leek that was seasoned with fresh thyme, fresh chopped asparagus and frozen peas along with a little parsley.

The soup is then topped with a poached egg (3 minutes = perfection) plus a little drizzle of EVOO and some extra parsley plus S&P and served with a side of crackers (or toast or anything your heart desires).
