In a normal pot add all the peas along with vegetable stock for little water, cream and thyme and rosemary and let it boil for couple of minutes till everything becomes soft in the pan. then blend everything finely with the help of hand blender or after it gets cooled transfer the mixture to electric blender for blending it to make puree.
once the mixture is completely blended then let it cook on low heat for some more time, while its one stove add the salt, pepper or herbs of your choice and white truffle oil one spoon at a time to adapt to its taste.
then its made after 2-4 minutes of heating, add it to serving bowl and garnish it with drizzle of truffle oil or cream on top with some parsley or thyme leaves minced to enjoy with your family and friends

adding some seasoning and different herbs and spices like oregano mix, mint, dill seeds, soaked chia seeds etc would make it more tasty
some people also add cottage cheese cubes, tofu cubes, pecorino cubes, ricotta cheese as garnish for pea soup to make it more good looking, better tasting, filling and nutritious
if you a fan of white truffles and can afford them as they are expensive then you can also add few slices of it on top of the serving bowl besides adding the truffle oil to take the taste of your pea soup to next level.
if you cant get white truffle oil which is best suited for this recipe due to its good taste and pairing combination with peas then you can make it at home also by using any light flavored oil like olive oil etc. and keep the sliced truffle in oil of jar or any container for few hours to 1 day before using. keep it in fridge for best preservation. it will last up to 3-7 days so don’t make it large batches rather smaller ones to consume with small time frame for best time frame. you can try with other truffles also to see if it works for your taste preference but i like white one best for this recipe.
