Peas that Please

unnamed (6)

Peas are not in a lot of people’s forte.  It just seems very plain with nothing too crazy about it;  So people tend to keep passing it on at the table.  I think with this recipe you will want to give it a try; not once, but twice.  These peas are perfect for any special occasion especially a BBQ.


1 large onion, sliced
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Pinch of sugar
3 cups frozen peas
1/4 cup scallions, chopped
1/4 cup crushed almonds, optional
1/2 cup goat cheese
1 teaspoon thyme


In a large skillet on medium to medium low heat add butter and olive oil.  Next add sliced onions.  Stir until well coated with butter and oil.  Add salt, pepper and thyme.  Spread the onions out nice and evenly, and cook.  Stir occasionally.  After about 5 minutes add the pinch of sugar.  Cook for another 10 minutes or so until nicely caramelized.

Now add the peas to the skillet with the caramelized onions.  Stir until everything is well incorporated.  Cook for about 3 minutes.  Next add 1/4 cup of the goat cheese.  Stir until melted.  Place on to a serving dish and top with scallions, almonds and remaining goat cheese. Enjoy!
