Chilled Cream of Pea Soup
Step 1: Soup
Shell the peas. Sort half of the pods, choosing the smallest ones, and string them like green beans. Wash and chop them.
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a sauté pan, and sweat the chopped pea pods for around 5 minutes.
Add the peas and the sugar, and season lightly with salt. Cook for a further 3 minutes, and then add the chicken stock. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
Add the cream, then simmer for a further 10 minutes.
Prepare ice cubes in a basin and put a large bowl on top.
Blend the soup until completely smooth. Pour it quickly into the iced bowl, so that it retains its color. Season to taste.
