November Soups- Pea and Leak Soup

As the winter months approach I've decided that November was a great time to begin a plethora of soup recipes.
Today while walking home from class it hit me that everything was either dead or just about ready to be and that there was very little green left on the ground.. thus green pea soup came to mind to bring my mind at ease that winter's right around the corner.

Pea Leak Soup
3 cups of vegetable broth (could be store brought or made at home with vegetable boullion cube)
10 oz of frozen peas
1 cup of chopped leaks
1/2 cup of onion
1 tablespoon of Earth Balance
1/3 cup of fresh mint leaves
1 tsp of salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Cook the onions and leaks in Earth Balance for about 10 mins until onions are translucent
Add the vegetable broth, peas, mint leaves, salt and pepper . Cook together for about 3 mins.
Transfer the soup to a blender one ladle at a time. Blend until smooth.
Transfer the creamy soup to a large bowl and let it chill in the fridge. You can serve it chilled or you can reheat it and enjoy!

For decor you may add : a dollop of Toffuti Better than Sour Cream and a sprinkle of freshly cut chives.
