2 leeks, woodiest part of the green leaves removed

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 pound frozen peas

1 cup sour cream

1 1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley

1 lemon, juiced

2 tablespoons sliced scallions


  1. Halve, slice, wash the leeks well and drain. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the leeks and cook until softened but not brown, about 5 minutes.

Blend on low until smooth. Garnish with the scallions.
