  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 shallots , finely chopped
  • pounds spring peas , shelled
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 6 bacon strips
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 3 tablespoons herbed olive oil
  • 2 radishes , sliced into thin rounds


  • Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots and cook until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add peas and cook another 5 minutes. Add broth and bring to a low boil. Reduce heat and simmer until peas are just tender (not mushy), about 15 minutes.
  • While peas are simmering, cook bacon on a skillet until crisp. Once crisp, drain on paper towels and cut each strip in half widthwise and set aside.
  • Puree the peas and broth mixture until smooth, using either a handheld immersion blender or standing blender. (Use caution pureeing hot liquids.) Once mixture is smooth, return the soup to the pot over low heat.
  • Stir in the yogurt and lemon juice and heat through. Add salt and pepper (add more to taste if necessary).
  • Serve warm or chilled in shot glasses. Sprinkle with smoked paprika. Top each with a swirl of herbed olive oil. Cut small sliver in radish slices and place one on side of each glass along with a halved slice of bacon for garnish.
