An Easy Recipe for Spring Pea Soup

The markets of Provence literally spring to life at this time of year with fresh asparagus, young lettuces and the first peas of the season. To celebrate the season of rebirth after a cold winter enjoy this recipe for Spring Pea Soup.  When I make this soup, it is my early season reminder that my “Taste of Provence” tours are not far off, and I will be able to buy the ingredients right from the farmers in Provence.
