This vibrant green-colored soup has a fresher taste than traditional split pea soup. The addition of mint gives it an added crispness of flavor.
- 1 medium fennel bulb, with stalks (about 4 cups)
- 3 cans (14½ ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas, slightly thawed
- 2 teaspoons shallots, roughly chopped
- ½ cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint, for garnish
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Coarsely chop fennel and place in a large saucepan.
- Add broth and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes, until fennel is very soft.
- Strain broth into a large bowl and set aside.
- In a blender, starting on low speed and increasing to high, purée peas, shallots and fennel, using reserved fennel broth to about 1-inch under the solids (depending on size of blender, this may take 2 to 3 batches).
- Soup should be smooth and thick, but still have some texture.
- Place soup back into saucepot on medium heat and bring to a simmer.
- Finish with cream, mint and season with salt and pepper.
- Serve hot or chill in an airtight container until cold.
