Since many commercial vegetable broths taste overly sweet and funky, try making your own. If you do use canned vegetable broth, be sure to dilute it with some water (about 1 cup of broth to 1 1/2 cups of water). When fresh peas aren’t available, frozen peas are a great substitute.

                                                                  • Yes No 1/8 tsp black pepper
                                                                  • Yes No 3 16 oz cup fresh peas
                                                                  • Yes No 1/4 cup loosely packed mint
                                                                  • Yes No 1 tsp lemon juice
                                                                  • Yes No crème fraiche
                                                                  • Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat until foaming. Add the leek, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and a pinch of pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes.
                                                                  • Add the broth, remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and measured pepper and bring to a boil. Add the peas and bring to a boil again. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer until the peas are tender, about 5 minutes.
                                                                  • Remove the pan from heat, add the mint leaves, and stir to combine. Let sit uncovered until the flavors meld, about 10 minutes.
                                                                  • Using a blender, purée the soup in batches until smooth, removing the small cap from the blender lid (the pour lid) and covering the space with a kitchen towel (this allows steam to escape and prevents the lid from popping off). Transfer the soup to a clean saucepan (if serving warm) or a heatproof bowl and stir in the lemon juice. Taste and season with more salt, pepper, and lemon juice as needed. If serving warm, reheat over low heat. If serving cold, let cool to room temperature, cover, then refrigerate until cold. Top each serving with a dollop of crème fraîche, if desired.
