Published June 3, 2010 2:04PM (EDT)


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 pound frozen peas (preferably not petite peas)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and pepper


  1. In a saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent but not browned, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Add the mint and peas and cook until the peas begin to lose their frosty tinge. Add the water, cover, and simmer until the peas are army green, 8 to 12 minutes.
  3. Transfer to a food processor, add the butter and salt and pepper to taste, and process to just shy of smooth. Serve hot.
