Spring recipe--sweet pea soup 101!

Fresh Sweet Pea Soup
Peas are one of my comfort foods. Growing up Italian and not exactly affluent, macaroni and peas, rice and peas and , well , a bowl of peas with butter and cheese was my Foie Gras. Now that I live the Hudson Valley, I can relish the spring because iknow the peas are coming. This is a soup thatould be made vegetarian, vegan, or with chicken stock and could also be garnished with crisp prosciutto or crumbled bacon. It is all about the peas. Picking peas is the essence of Slow Food. When you take your time to pick the peas, the soup means more and tastes better.
