Green peas is one of the few great stuff that you can buy frozen. It´s a great vegetable to use for loads of stuff and making a habit of having some sitting in the freezer is always a good idea. I usually use peas to make sure I always eat some extra vegetables and you can add it to lots of dishes. One of my favorite recipes that I do at least a few times every year is a pasta with bacon, green peas and feta cheese. You don´t even need a recipe to do it, just fry bacon, add cooked pasta, peas and some feta cheese and serve.
You can also do other stuff like smashed peas on toast that I´ve posted before here on Delicious Tapas, check that recipe by following the link. Smashed peas on toast recipe.
OK, on with the soup which is very easy to make, only thing you need to worry about is not to keep it warm for too long since this will make the green color go dark. If you are preparing it ahead of serving then chill it before and then quickly heat it before serving.
Green pea soup with cream & Champagne

frozen green peas
Champagne (or any dry sparkling white wine)
light chicken stock or vegetable stock
lemon juice
salt, pepper
Dice the onion and saute it on low heat in butter until it´s soft, add the peas and cover with chicken stock a little bit of milk and cream and quickly bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and mix the soup and then strain the soup through a sieve to get rid of any bigger pieces. Season the soup with salt, pepper and a little bit of lemon juice.
Whip the cream until it thickens, you don´t want to whip it too hard, just the get it semi-thick, the cream is suppose to almost melt when you add it to the soup. Add about two spoonfuls of Champagne to a glass and then pour over the soup. Top the soup with the whipped cream. Serve.
