Creamy Asparagus Pea Soup

Serves 6.

Creamy Asparagus Pea Soup

A little bit of cooking and a high-speed blender is all that’s required for this delicious soup. The mild flavours of asparagus mingled with fresh sweet peas, sautéed garlic, and a hint of mint and lemon bring a medley of savoury, sweet, aromatic, and fresh together in one bowl.

DIY lemon-infused olive oil

Don’t have lemon-flavoured olive oil on hand? Simply make your own. Thoroughly wash and scrub a lemon. Cut zest off in strips, avoiding white pith. Place in small saucepan with 1 cup (250 mL) extra-virgin olive oil. Heat gently just until simmering. Cool and strain oil into clean bottle. Store in a cool, dark place for up to 4 months.

Tip

Sautéed ramps, also known as wild leeks, make an ideal addition to this soup. Only available during a short window in the spring, these greens are the epitome of the season and are excellent in many dishes. Snap them up if you see them.
