  • Prepare an ice-water bath. Fill another large saucepan with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Add salt and return to a boil. Add peas and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and immediately transfer peas to ice-water bath to cool. Drain and add to saucepan with vegetables and stock.

  • Working in batches, puree the soup in the jar of a blender or bowl of a food processor. Strain liquid twice through a fine mesh sieve into another large saucepan. Add 1 cup of heavy cream and place saucepan over low heat. Season with salt, pepper, and sugar. Tie mint together using kitchen twine and add to saucepan; let steep for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove mint and discard. If soup seems too thick, add some of the remaining vegetable stock to thin.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk remaining 1/2 cup heavy cream until soft peaks form. Gently fold into the warmed soup. Serve immediately.

I found the addition of the lobster was not neccessary. It takes away from the fresh pea flavor.
