  • Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil; immediately reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and simmer until peas are tender, about 6 minutes.

  • Working in batches, transfer soup to the jar of a blender or bowl of a food processor; carefully blend until pureed. Strain soup through a fine mesh sieve set over saucepan; season with salt and pepper. Divide soup evenly between 4 bowls. Place 1 crostino in each bowl and garnish with mint; serve immediately.

Really lovely, delicate soup. his is a perfect first course soup for a dinner party. The servings weren't large after straining the soup—just enough for about 2.5-3 servings. T I did make the accompanying vegetable broth and I think that really added to the soup.
