1 (10 ounce) package
frozen green peas, thawed
1 (4.5 ounce) jar
sliced mushrooms, drained
This is really good. I sauteed the onions w/ fresh mushrooms untill tender, then added fresh chopped garlic. Not to make so many dishes and to keep the peas from getting overcooked/mushy and to maintain the vibrant green, I added them frozen to the sauteed mushroom mixture and stirred for a few minutes untill warmed through and cooked to a tender crisp. Thx, will make again.
we didn't like it
I like this recipe a lot but will caution that it cannot "sit" while you are preparing other dishes -- the peas did not "hold up" well from a presentation standpoint. So, if you are making this recipe, plan on doing it last and taking it directly to the table once its hot.
I think this would've been better as written, rather than with my changes ... but you can learn from my mistakes :-( I used canned small peas instead of frozen, but they ended up being crushed no matter how carefully I stirred them. I also forgot the thyme, which would've added some much needed flavor to the recipe. Finally, I used rehydrated dried minced onion instead of fresh, because I don't like fresh onions. Well, if you don't like onions, just leave them out, don't use dried. WITHOUT my changes, I think this would've been pretty tasty!
Be sure to use sweet onions and saute them until they are soft. I've made this several times and it's much better this way. It's a great way to dress up plain peas!
I sauteed fresh mushrooms along with the garlic and onions. This was a nice change from plain old peas. It went great with mashed potatoes and meatloaf.
This is a great way to make peas more attractive. I used fresh pressed garlic cloves instead of minced and fresh mushrooms. I kept everything else the same. This was really a great additional side served with mashed potatoes. Will make again.
This has become one of our favorite side dishes!
