Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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.
