 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      tablespoons   olive oil
      1/4  cup           finely chopped onion
    2      cups          finely chopped washed boston lettuce
                         -- leaves
    2      cups          water
    1      package       (10 ounces) thawed frozen tiny peas
      1/4  cup           washed mint leaves -- packed
    2      cups          ice water or heavy cream
      1/4  cup           snipped chives
                         salt and freshly ground black pepper
                         plain yogurt for garnish -- optional
 
 In a saucepan heat the olive oil. When hot, add the onion, cover and simmer
 gently for about 3 to 4 minutes or until tender. Add the lettuce and stir
 just until wilted. Add the 2 cups of water and peas and bring just to a
 boil and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and season with salt and
 pepper. Puree through a food mill or in a food processor with the mint,
 then add enough ice water or cream to thin to the desired consistency.
 Chill until serving time. Before serving, adjust the seasoning and serve
 garnished with chives and yogurt if you wish
