Serves 4
This cold soup is lovely garnished with fresh edible flowers such as nasturtiums, chive blossoms or Gem marigolds.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 potato, diced
  • 2 cups stock or water
  • 1 one-pound package frozen peas
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint
  • Salt and cayenne pepper to taste
  1. In a soup pot over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil. Add the onions and sauté until soft and transparent, then add the garlic and sauté a few minutes longer. Add the potato and stock and simmer 8 minutes, or until the potato is almost soft. Add the peas and simmer 5 minutes, or until the peas are soft.
  2. Strain, saving the liquid and cool slightly. Puree the solids in a food processor until very smooth, adding the reserved liquid as needed. Place the puree in a bowl, add the remaining ingredients, and stir until smooth. Thin to the consistency that you like with the reserved liquid or water. Chill, adjust seasonings and serve cold.
