Sometimes the peas in the garden outpace the picking or the supplies in the store aren’t so fabulous. Here’s a recipe for those less-than-perfect peas—no shucking involved. A soup for the true pea lover.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
12 cups  water
2 pounds  English peas with shells
1/3 cup  finely chopped fresh dill, plus sprigs for garnish
1 teaspoon  salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
3/4 cup  low-fat plain yogurt

DIRECTIONS
Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Add peas, return to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 45 minutes.


Using a slotted spoon, transfer one-third of the pea pods to a food processor. Add 1/2 cup cooking liquid and process until smooth. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids). Pour into a large bowl. Repeat with the remaining pea pods in 2 batches, with 1/2 cup cooking liquid each time. Pour the pureed peas plus the remaining cooking liquid through a fine-meshed sieve, pressing on the solids to extract as much liquid as possible. (Alternatively, put through a food mill fitted with a fine disc).


Return the soup to the pot, bring to a boil and then simmer until reduced by about a third (to about 6 cups), 30 to 35 minutes. Stir in chopped dill, salt and pepper. Ladle into bowls and top each serving with a swirl or dollop of yogurt and a sprig of dill, if desired.
