How to prepare: Cream of peas with feta crumbs
Start preparing the vegetable broth you will need for the pea and feta soup. In the meantime, put the friselle in a plastic bag for food storage and break them, using a meat mallet or a rolling pin, until you get small pieces. Keep aside. Peel and wash the potatoes and cut them into chunks. Clean the leek, rinse it under running water and slice it into slices.
Brown the leek for a few minutes in a little oil in a high-sided saucepan. Salt lightly. Add the peas and potato cubes. Mix well, leave to flavor for a couple of minutes then cover with the boiling broth and cook for about twenty minutes, until the vegetables are tender.
With an immersion blender, away from the heat, blend everything until you get a smooth cream, adjusting the salt. If necessary, adjust the density of the cream by gradually adding more hot vegetable broth. Spread the cream into 4 soup plates. Cover with the crumbled feta with your hands and finish with the pieces of frisella. Drizzle with a drizzle of raw oil, decorate with a few mint leaves, a sprinkling of freshly ground pepper and serve immediately.
