Recipe by Chef John
"We're doing this classic cold spring soup, and instead of using English peas, we're using sugar snaps which are going to save you a lot of shelling time. This is an incredibly easy soup to make, beautiful to look at, and most important of all, incredibly delicious."

leeks - halved lengthwise and chopped
ground black pepper to taste
cayenne pepper, or to taste
sugar snap peas, ends and strings removed
fresh mint leaves
fresh mint leaves, cut into very fine strips
Instead of a leek, I used an onion, and replaced the chicken broth with turkey broth. This has great flavor, with the gentle taste of mint being quite welcome!
Perfect cool soup.
Super easy! Substituted frozen peas for snap peas and it turned out great! Will definitely make again :)
I made this but was on a liquid diet and could not wait for it to cool. It was so good. I did also have it cold and both were extremely good. It is good both ways.
