Minty Pea Soup

Makes 6 servings
1 large onion, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil

2 cups fresh green peas (or frozen, thawed)
1 head butter lettuce, chopped
3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
Salt and pepper


1. Cook onion in melted butter and olive oil in a large pot over medium heat until translucent, about 10 minutes. Mix in potatoes and celery and cook another 5 minutes.
2. Mix broth and peas into pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Lower heat and cook 15 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
