  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped

  6. Add the frozen peas to the pot and cook for 5 minutes more.
  7. Remove the bay leaf and discard. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Serve hot, with crusty bread or over cooked rice, if desired.
