I must preface this with - I really dislike peas, however, my husband loves them. I have made them a few times over the years to appease him, I'll take a bite (like maybe two or three peas) just to say I tried them - he ends up eating the entire amount. I used fresh peas from our garden and made as directed (2 servings) and for the first time since I was a child (and had no choice) I ate an entire portion. Thank you Paula W for this simple, tasty recipe - anytime I prepare peas in the future it will be this recipe.

This was good; I especially liked the addition of soy sauce as I felt it needed a little more flavor. I added allspice, used olive oil instead of vegetable and yellow onions instead of green to give it a little more bite. We served it over rice and lentils.

This is a nice side dish. We enjoyed the addition of mushrooms, a good mix of both color and taste. Made for ZWT8

This was a lovely dish Paula, great flavors and textures. It was quick and easy to put together and was a great side dish for our Steak Diane. We really enjoyed the addition of the soya sauce. Thanks for sharing. Made for Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - India

I used frozen peas, but I didn't boil them. I just threw them in the pan after sauteeing the mushrooms and onions. I also used butter instead of vegetable oil--the veggies deserved it! Thanks for posting. Made for the Lively Lemon Lovelies, ZWT8.

Very simple and good. The mushrooms really taste great with the addition of peas, and even though I used frozen peas, I couldn't tell in terms of taste. Great side dish, made along with tomato cheddar rarebit. Made for ZWT8.

I love peas and I love mushrooms, how could this miss? Made as directed with the exception of the soy sauce which I never keep or use and that I added a few snap peas that I had. This is so simple and so good. Fresh and healthy, a true pleasure of a recipe.

Oh my goodness!! This was fantastic! I used fresh garden peas and the only changes I made were these: olive oil to saute the green onions as another cook suggested and I had to use canned mushrooms but otherwise I followed your directions exactly. I will be making this again for sure! Thanks for the great flavor treat!

I'm not that crazy about peas, but I do like them occasionally. And I especially loved them paired with mushrooms, which is one of my favorite vegetables. I loved that this is a healthy side dish. I didn't have green onions so I used a sweet onion. I think the green onions would enhance the flavor more and I will try that next time. I was afraid the soy sauce would be overpowering, but it wasn't. It gives it a nice flavor with no butter needed. I did use olive oil to saute the mushrooms and onions. Thanks for sharing!
