  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 yellow onion diced
  • 2 bunches green onions sliced, green and white parts
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 lb petite peas fresh or frozen
  • 3 Tbsp Greek yogurt non-fat, plain
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat then add diced onions, sliced green onions and salt. Cook about 5–6 minutes, until onion is tender and translucent.
  • Add chicken broth then bring to a boil. Add peas then return to a boil. Allow fresh peas to boil for 5 minutes and boil frozen peas for 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat then puree soup in a blender in batches or use an immersion blender to puree the soup right in the pot.
  • Stir in Greek yogurt and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with a bit of finely chopped fresh mint, garlic croutons or a drizzle of high-quality olive oil.
