Notes

You can replace the cream with milk or use more vegetable broth. To garnish the velvety peas more heavily, instead of Grana Padano's flakes, you can use diced bacon to sauté in a saucepan or make cubes of bread in a saucepan or under the oven rack with a little bit of aromatic oil or aromatic herbs until golden and crispy!

Pea soup may be stored in a refrigerator for up to 1-2 days in an airtight container. You can also freeze portions if you have used fresh, undelayed ingredients!
