"Creamy Greek-Style Pea Soup: Peas are normally considered a side dish, but in here, it is the star of the dish. Serve with crusty bread and a bottle of white wine for a light lunch! All it takes are a few pantry staples and some patience to create this lovely and vibrant spring season starter. The secret to this rich-flavored vegetable dish is the hint of yogurt at the end. You can add a teaspoon of paprika or cumin to add a few more herbaceous notes and a smoky flavor. A few crispy bacon bits would be nice as well."
