    You'll never look at green peas the same way again...they are sooo good. There is such little work to get the best out of this long loved vegetable.

    I loved everything about this recipe, except for the cooking of the frozen peas. I recommend putting your frozen peas into a bowl of cold water to thaw for about 20 minutes, drain well, then add to the onion/garlic saute mixture for just a couple minutes to heat through. This way, you'll avoid the wrinkly and mushy look of overcooked frozen peas, and the peas will stay a vibrant green color. The flavor of this dish is great and is a nice change from the same old blah peas. Thanks for sharing the recipe!  -  09 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Let me preface this by saying I am not a big fan of cooked peas....raw & hidden in a salad w/lots of other yummy stuff (and dressing!), is good....cooked, bleh! These peas, however, me likey! These were excellent, as well as quick/easy to prepare, made w/ingredients readily on hand at our house, and an added bonus...good for me!! I cooked according to recipe, except I didn't measure oil (dash), onion (1/2 of one...looked like enough and it was, thought the whole onion would not have been too much either), or garlic (lots and lots of pre-minced). I also panicked a little and added some extra broth because it didn't "seem" like enough (it would have been...that's what the recipe is for, moron). One caveat, my peas ended a little on the mushy side because of my own timing....I tried to let them sit (covered still) while the rest of the meal caught I recommend serving immediately. Thanks for a great veggie side, easy enough for weeknights, but respectable enough for guests, too.  -  17 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I love this reciPEA. I like to cook my peas in the microwave so they can keep their pop. When I say Cook I mean defrost. I poured the chicken stock over my peas and defrosted them for a few minutes. After I sauteed the onion and garlic I poured it over the peas. I let it marinate for a few minutes before serving. My three year old loved it.  -  05 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
