Refreshing Pea Soup with Tarragon

During the cold weather months, I’ve been experimenting with lots of different soups. Even though the soup I’m about to tell you about is more of a spring/summer dish, it’s really great to enjoy anytime.  I loved its easy preparation, consisting of only 6 ingredients that are easy to find in one's pantry from the get go.  The only ingredient I didn't have was the white wine and I substituted that with a little splash of cider vinegar, which did the trick.

What I really love about this soup are its light, refreshing flavors and the sweetness that comes from the peas.  The tarragon gives it a jolt of personality and elevates this soup from something ordinary to a smart, thoughtful dish. While this soup can definitely fill you up on its own, I recommend pairing it with a hearty piece of bread such as a focaccia or a nice flatbread.  My personal recommendation is the rosemary focaccia bread from Artopolis Bakery (nicely toasted, of course).  Take a bite out of that, and enjoy.
