Cool and refreshing Chilled Pea Soup is a perfect welcome to spring.

Instructions

  1. Add the olive oil to a large pot. Cook until sizzling over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic; cook, stirring often, until softened but not browned.
  2. Add the broth, salt and pepper; stir and bring to a boil. Add the peas, cover, reduce heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the yogurt and basil leaves.
  4. Puree the soup in a blender or in the pot using an immersion blender, thinning with water if the soup is too thick, until smooth.
  5. Cool to room temperature. Transfer the soup to a container, cover and chill at least 2 hours or up to overnight. Garnish before serving.
