It’s always good to have a recipe up your sleeve that is super easy to put together with items that you always have on hand.
I’m always amazed by the way a few simple ingredients can be put together to produce the most delicious results. I’ve never really been a huge a fan of onions- I love the flavor, but the texture doesn’t really do it for me. So as a kid, I steered clear of foods with pieces of onion. But somehow my sweet Grandma Rosie managed to get me to try these peas, and the onions had cooked down to the point that they weren’t even noticeable. Needless to say, I was hooked.
This is now one of my go-to veggie side dishes. It’s the perfect week night side dish. Just throw it together quickly and you’re ready to go!
Peas with Onions
Source: Rosie Scuteri
- 2.5 cups of peas
- 1 small onion, minced
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- 1 cup of water
Over medium/medium high heat, warm your oil. Add your onions to the pan and season with salt and pepper to taste. Sweat them for a few minutes until they are soft but not browned.
Add your peas to the pan and season with salt and pepper to taste. Saute for a couple minutes.
Add a cup of water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer. Simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until the water has reduced to a very small amount and the peas are cooked.
