Delicate Summer Peas Soup

Fresh summer peas are only available for a very short time. So whenever I spot them on the Farmers’ Market, I directly buy them! Since I love the flavor of the peas, I decided not to go crazy with spices. This soup is made with just a few ingredients to really highlight the peas.
