Minted Peas & Shallots

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/minted_peas_shallots.html

From EatingWell:  May/June 1998, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

Peas are high in fiber and a good source of other nutrients. They're also one of our favorite harbingers of spring. Whether you shell your own straight from the garden or go for the convenience of frozen, these sweet minted peas are a celebration of the earth turning green again.

4 servings | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add shallots and cook, stirring, until softened and beginning to color, about 3 minutes. Stir in peas, broth and sugar. Increase heat to medium-high and cook until the peas are just tender and most of the liquid has evaporated, 4 to 6 minutes. Stir in mint and butter. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
