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.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
2 teaspoons  canola oil
1/2 cup  chopped shallots
3 cups  fresh or frozen peas (see Tip)
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

Tip: One pound of peas in the pod yields 1 cup of shelled peas.
DIRECTIONS
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.
