PEAS WITH MINT and MUSHROOMS
It's also useful for entertaining small children, although admittedly they tend to consume any peas that get shelled by their small fingers.
How to Make PEAS WITH MINT and MUSHROOMS
- Fill a 2 quart pot halfway with water; salt and set to boil.
- Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a wide saute' pan or skillet. Add the mushrooms and saute' for 5 to 6 minutes, until they have absorbed any liquid they release. Set aside
- When water boils, drop in the peas and cook, uncovered for 2 to 3 minutes. Drain the peas and combine with the mushrooms in the pan
- Add the butter, mint, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook over medium heat until the butter melts and the peas and mushrooms are heated through.
