Blanch fresh peas in boiling water for 10 minutes, drain and refresh in ice-cold water (to set colour). Drain and reserve. Heat butter in a saucepan until foamy. Add oil and sauté onion until pale gold. Add potatoes and stir for a few seconds until coated with butter. Season. Cover saucepan tightly and simmer until potatoes are just tender. Add mint and peas and sprinkle with sugar. Stir for 2 to 3 seconds, then add stock. Cover and continue cooking until peas are tender (or defrosted). Purée until smooth and pass through a sieve. Stir in cream and leave soup to cool. To serve, spoon soup into shallow plates and top with a spoonful of yoghurt and sprigs of fresh mint.
