Smashed Peas with Mint

Print Friendly and PDF

Here's an alternative way to serve green peas or shelled edamame. The mint was steamed along with the peas, then mashed.  It becomes a colorful side dish for any meat.

Ingredients:
Frozen peas or frozen shelled edamame
2 T butter
Fresh mint, one torn handful
2 T fresh lemon juice
Salt, pepper to taste

Steam the peas and mint for 8 minutes. Mash the peas with a potato masher or hand held blender until you get the desired consistency. The one pictured above has a chunky consistency. Then add the butter, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
