How to Make Peas with Garlic & Tomatoes

- Peel skin from tomato with a sharp knife; discard skin. Chop remaining tomato into very small pieces.
- Mince garlic; set aside.
- Pour 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a skillet, add the tomatoes and cook until just starting to soften. Add minced garlic and cook together with tomatoes a few minutes. Don't let the garlic turn brown or it will be bitter.
- Add the peas and let simmer for a couple of minutes to blend flavors. Now, you're ready to serve.
