weekday cooking ~ English peas

This beautiful batch of English peas was in our produce box this week. It was good to try them out for a simple weekday side dish. A bunch didn't make much, just enough for two servings. They were so fresh and easy to peel but I have to say it was a lot of work. However, it took only a few minutes to sautee the peas with finely minced onion followed by a light sprinkle of salt and pepper to highlight the fresh flavor of the peas. It was nice to have a bright shade of spring green on the dinner table. It was a perfect dish to serve with a simple weekday meal.
