1 bag frozen peas (10 oz.)
2 cups chicken broth or vegetable broth
1 small onion, stuck with 2 cloves
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp. white pepper
1 bunch fresh mint (save a few of the prettiest leaves for garnish)
1 cup sour cream or heavy cream (optional for vegans)
Combine everything, except the sour cream in a heavy bottomed pan, bring to a boil, then simmer until peas are soft. Remove onion, garlic and mint, then process with an immersion blender or in a food processor.
Chill and serve. Top with a small dollop of sour cream and garnish with mint leaves.
