English Lunch

I had planned a 4 course dinner for our anniversary, but with moving out in 3 days, we are working on clearing out our fridge, not add to it.  There was only one thing on the menu that used ingredients we already had, English Mint-Pea Soup.  With it, I toasted one of my English muffins from the BBA Challenge this week.

chilled minty pea soup:

  • 1 C low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 C shelled peas, plus more for garnish
  • Salt
  • 10 mint leaves
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  1. Bring buttermilk to a boil over medium heat.   Add peas and simmer for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Puree in immersion blender with mint leaves and cool in the fridge (or freezer if in a time crunch) until chilled.
  3. Garnish with mint leaves and freshly ground pepper.
