Peas with Mint

Piselli con la Menta


Peas with ginger and mint is a versatile vegetable dish to go with meats, fowl, or fish. Barely cook the peas to maintain their shape and texture. A great springtime dish and a nice change from ordinary peas with butter.


1 tablespoon Filippo Berio olive oil

1 teaspoon finely minced ginger

2 cups fresh or frozen peas, defrosted

1/4 cup minced fresh mint

Salt to taste


Heat the olive oil in a medium size saucepan and stir in the ginger; cook stirring occasionally until the ginger is fragrant and begins to brown slightly. Stir in the peas and cook about 2 minutes, coating them well in the oil. Off the heat, stir in the mint; season with salt and serve hot.
