Potage St. Germain is a french green pea soup which has season's fresh peas along with a couple of other vegetables and a base of Bechamel sauce, which makes it creamy, hearty and delicious. Here, I have modified the way of making this green pea soup by cooking the vegetables in a pressure cooker and then bringing everything together in a pot.
Pressure cook the peas, potato and mint with salt and water till they are cooked. Once it cools down completely, blitz it into a puree.
In a heavy bottom pan, heat the butter and oil. Saute the garlic lightly before adding the flour. Now pour the milk and whisk everything together. There should be no lumps in the sauce.
Add the pepper.
Pour the vegetable puree in the sauce and mix everything. It should thicken up as it simmers. Check seasoning and add salt as needed. turn off the heat when you think the consistency is perfect.
