Peas

Peas the forgotten vegetable

Peas with garlic and thyme - I don’t make peas often enough, mainly because I can’t stand the frozen ones, and it’s just not a vegetable I think of, then when I make it I think OH YA! I love peas, I remember now! So in this side series, let’s talk peas! So easy, so yummy, and so good for you! Best of all? FRESH!

What you need:

2 bags of Fresh Peas (Publix has them in the produce section!)
Half a stick of butter
3 sprigs of fresh thyme leaves off
2 cloves of fresh garlic crushed
1/4 cup of water

What to do: Add the butter to a sauce pan Add the garlic as the butter melts and allow it to toast till slightly golden Add the thyme, peas and water Bring to a boil then turn on low and let simmer while you are preparing the rest of your meal (approx. 20 min or until peas are soft).
