This soup is only briefly simmered, which means very little time at a hot stove, and is remenisnent of the old French recipes that call for lettuce and a touch of curry powder. This one in particular owes much to Suzanne Goin. The curry powder is not an overt flavor but lends a deep background note that helps to balance the soup. It can be made in the dead of summer as well, provided that the peas are still sweet, or you can use frozen.
