  1. Cover the peas with hot water and let stand for 5 minutes. Drain.
  2. Working in batches if needed, process the peas, stock, mint, and thyme in a blender until smooth. Add more stock if the soup is too thick. Season well with salt and pepper, and process again.
  3. To serve, stir in the crème fraîche, and top with a pinch of nutmeg. Serve hot or cold, with crusty bread.
  • Use frozen fava beans or lima beans instead of the peas, or use a combination of peas and beans.
