Pea cream, mint and a touch of sour cream. Spring is coming, and with spring arriving the beans, the peas, the courgettes with flower! Seen but still not really hot, I propose a spring cream that can be prepared in 20 minutes and you can eat hot or even warm: is only made with peas, shallots, fresh mint and olive oil, and topped with sour cream and chives. Incredibly easy to prepare (the sour cream can do for you or you can buy creme fraiche which by now is also located at the supermarket), It tastes sweet and fresh, Thanks to mint and ginger. A nice way to start the new season with gusto. This is a vegetarian dish, also vegan and gluten-free, If used in place of sour cream Coconut cream. Have a good day!
