Braised Scallions & Peas
Scallions aren't just a garnish—here we saute them with peas for a quick and easy side dish.
- 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 bunches scallions, washed, trimmed and cut crosswise into thirds
- 1 cup fresh or frozen peas
- Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
- Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add scallions with water still clinging to them and cover. Reduce heat to low and cook until scallions are almost tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in peas, cover and cook until peas are heated through, about 2 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
