Wonderful for a winter day, this soup gets subtle flavor from curry. I serve it with salad and a toasted baguette.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • Dash to 1/8 teaspoon dried mint flakes
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas
  • 1 celery rib, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Fresh mint, optional

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, bring the water, bouillon, garlic, curry powder, salt, pepper and mint to a boil. Stir in peas and celery. Return to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 6-8 minutes or until peas and celery are tender. Cool slightly.
  2. Place pea mixture and milk in a blender; cover and process until blended. Return to saucepan. Stir in cream; heat through (do not boil). Stir in lemon juice. Garnish with fresh mint if desired.
