  • Summary

    Heavy cream fashioned into a doily-inspired pattern on top of this soup will float for a considerable amount of time -- long enough to allow you to create patterns on individual servings and present them at the table. Ladle some of the soup into bowls in the kitchen, and place the remaining soup in a tureen for seconds. Decorate the surfaces of both before serving.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 medium onions, finely chopped
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • 3 1/2 cups homemade or low-sodium store-bought chicken stock
    • 2 pounds fresh English peas, shelled (about 2 cups)
    • 1 pound spinach, tough stems discarded (about 12 cups packed leaves)
    • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    • Heavy cream, for decorating
