Garlic Lemon Peas

 

I love peas.  I love buttered peas even more.  To add garlic and fresh lemon zest is something bordering on pure genius.  Oh what yummy peas these are.  A perfect side dish for any meal, but especially nice with fish.

Ingredients for Making Peas with Garlic and Lemon

4 cups peas, fresh or frozen

1/2 stick butter

1/4 cup chopped garlic

Zest of 1 lemon

Salt and pepper to taste (about 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt)

How to Cook Peas with Garlic and Lemon in Butter

It only takes about 5 minutes to cook these peas, so plan your meal accordingly.

  1. Melt butter in pot
  2. Add chopped garlic and cook until the butter is just starting to turn brown

  3. Add the peas and lemon zest, season with salt and pepper, stir, and cover with lid
  4. Cook covered for about 2 minutes, or until peas are soft but still bright green.
  5. Stir again and taste to make sure they have enough salt and pepper, adding more if needed.

Serve hot.
