Romaine and Sweet Pea Soup

We plant our petits pois (little peas) in winter and are rewarded with beautiful blossoms and tendrils by March. This simple soup recipe is a harbinger of spring and can easily be adapted to vegetarian. A finish of hazelnut oil will elevate this dish while allowing these emeralds center stage.
