Smashed Peas with Mint
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.
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.
