I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
The Worlds Freshest Pea Soup
...in your mind.

The Worlds Freshest Pea Soup

Makes 4 - 6 servings - This is not that thick, army green gross stuff. This is fresh, bright and really delicious. But if you want the old-school version, I’m sure you can find it in a can in the back of an old supermarket somewhere...


  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 - 2 ounce package of Ready Bacon, diced
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1 - 16oz bag frozen peas
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Sour cream


  1. Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat, add oil and cook the red onion until very soft and beginning to brown slightly
  2. Add bacon and continue to cook everything starts getting crispy
  3. While that cooks, heat the chicken stock in a separate pot
  4. Once it boils, add the peas and cook for about 2 1/2 minutes
  5. Drain the peas (reserving the broth) and put into a blender and add just enough broth to cover
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste
  7. Cover and blend until smooth
  8. Add the whipping cream and continue blending until really smooth
  9. Serve in a bowl and top with a spoonful of sour cream and some of the red onion/bacon mixture
