How to cook
Gather and portion ingredients.
Cut the onion in half and peel keeping the root end intact. Make a few cuts into the onion with the knife parallel to the cutting board. Then slice into strips and dice.
Melt the butter in a skillet and add the chopped onions.
Saute chopped onion until lightly browned.
Add the peas and the vegetable broth to the pan with the onion. Let the peas thaw. If you are using fresh peas feel free to skip this step and go straight to the blender.
Add the peas, onion, and broth to the base of a blender and add the yogurt, garlic, and the leaves of fresh basil.
Add a generous pinch of black pepper and salt. Add the olive oil and blend until smooth.
