In a soup pot or stockpot, add the oil. Saute onions, garlic, and bay leaves until onions are translucent.
Add potatoes and saute for another minute (the potato helps the green pea skins blend to a smooth, not gritty puree).
Followed by the green peas. Season with salt and pepper (if using commercial stock add less salt to the peas now).
Pour in the stock and simmer for about 5 minutes until the peas are tender.
Then, add the Parmesan and warm milk.
Remove bay leaves and use a hand mixer to blend everything to a smooth puree. If using a stand blender, cool the soup for a few minutes and be very careful as a hot soup can splash out and cause serious burns.
Finally, add the honey and butter - combine well.
Check and adjust seasoning and consistency. Add more water if necessary.
Serve in soup bowls with toasted croutons or bread. Garnish with a teaspoon of fresh cream.
