Peas are high in fiber and a good source of other nutrients. They’re also one of our favorite harbingers of spring. Whether you shell your own straight from the garden or go for the convenience of frozen, these sweet minted peas are a celebration of the earth turning green again.


  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped shallots
  • 3 cups fresh or frozen peas (see Ingredient Note)
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons shredded fresh mint
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste


Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add shallots and cook, stirring, until softened and beginning to color, about 3 minutes. Stir in peas, broth and sugar. Increase heat to medium-high and cook until the peas are just tender and most of the liquid has evaporated, 4 to 6 minutes. Stir in mint and butter. Season with salt and pepper and serve.

Ingredient Note: One pound of peas in the pod yields 1 cup of shelled peas.
