Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup minced yellow onion
  • 1 pound frozen green peas, not thawed
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
    • Directions

      Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the peas and water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover the saucepan, and simmer until tender, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add the salt and mint and stir.

      Using a slotted spoon, transfer the peas to serving plates. Serve hot.
