Ground black pepper


Heat the butter on low heat in a saucepan, until melted.

Cook leeks with thyme and garlic on low heat. Cook until soft but not yet brown.

Add the stock and bring to a boil. 

Add peas and lettuce. Cook until the peas are tender. Do not overcook or they will become mushy.

Stir in the mint and add black pepper to taste. 

Serve with croutons for added flavor.


Versatile Variations:

Make your own home made croutons with healthier sourdough bread. It will add an extra layer of flavor and also is better on the index.
