STEPS :

French Pea Soup
  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan, add the onion, and cook gently, stirring occasionally, for a few minutes until the onions are soft but not browned.
  2. Add the lettuce to the pan and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Add the flour and stir for 1-2 minutes longer, then add the peas, stock, sugar, and sprigs of mint. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes or until the peas are soft.
  3. Remove the mint sprigs and discard. Puree the soup in a food processor or blender until smooth.
  4. Return the soup to the rinsed-out pan, reheat, and add salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot, garnished with shredded fresh mint.

When fresh peas are out of season, substitute frozen peas. Because the pods make up about half the weight of unshelled peas, you will need 1 1/2 lb (750 g) frozen peas.
