Lynn Goodwin's Easy Pea Soup

2-10 oz bags of frozen peas

3 T ghee or butter

1 small onion, diced

4 cups of *vegetable broth

1/2 cup buttermilk

1/4 mint leaves

salt & pepper to taste


Heat butter or ghee in medium saucepan over medium heat.  Add onions and saute for just a few minutes until softened.  Add peas and broth.  Simmer until peas are cooked through. This will just take a few minutes.  Transfer soup to a blender, and mint leaves and puree.  Return to pot and stir in buttermilk.  Add in salt & pepper to taste. Serve.


*If I don't have homemade broth, I like to use vegetable bullion diluted in water.
