Peas, the unsung hero of the dinner table. A classic family vegetable which is often the subject of debate. Here is a sure fire way to get peas off the "no thank you" list and onto the "more peas" list.
Full time: 15 minutes
1 family size bag frozen peas, 14-16 oz.
1 small shallot, finely diced
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp chicken broth or stock
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
Preheat a large sauté pan over medium high heat.
Add butter and oil to pan and allow butter to melt.
Add in minced garlic and shallot, cooking 1-2 minutes until garlic begins to golden and shallot becomes soft.
Stirring often allow peas to cook, 5-8 minutes or until fully heated through.
Remove from heat and give a good stir.
Move to serving bowl and cheers!
