Minty Peas

February 20, 2008

This is such an easy recipe for peas, and a nice change to the ordinary steamed preparation. Fresh mint adds a boost of flavor and a wonderful contrast to the sweetness of the peas. And, you won't have to chase the peas around your plate with a knife and fork!

Minty Mushy Peas

2 T olive oil
1 bunch spring onions, chopped (green onions may also be used)
1 handful fresh mint leaves
1 pound frozen peas
2 large pats of butter

A splash of heavy cream
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat the oil in a pan and add the chopped onions, mint, and peas. Cover and leave for a few minutes to steam. Pulse with heavy cream in a food processor or blender until smooth. Add a dollop of butter on top and season to taste.

Bob's your uncle!

Peas!!!! My husbands' favorite, he would eat peas every day if I made them. This is a wonderful new recipe that I'll be able to use, rather than always plain peas. Thanks for the easy new way of fixing peas.
