Creamy Pea Soup
A holiday celebration doesn't have to require endless trips to the market and several days in the kitchen. This streamlined recipe puts an emphasis on make-ahead work, so the cook can enjoy the meal too.
Why This Recipe Works
Creamy pea soup is a great addition to an Easter menu. And since our recipe can be made up to three days in advance, the cook can enjoy the holiday instead of spending all day in the kitchen. Slowly whisking the chicken stock into the flour and onion mixture avoided floury lumps, and the mint garnish (which can be replaced with tarragon), gave our Creamy Pea Soup a fresh finish.
