Ingredients

2
tablespoons
unsalted butter
1
onion, chopped
2
cups
low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
1
pound
package frozen peas
3/4
cup
loosely packed fresh mint leaves
kosher salt

Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and 3/4 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring often, until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the broth and bring to a boil.
  2. Place the peas and mint in a blender and add the hot broth mixture. (Because hot liquids expand when blended, hold the lid firmly in place with a kitchen towel before blending.) Blend until smooth. Return to saucepan to heat through, if necessary.
