From Bon Appetit May 1998. Meant to be served alongside of rice or mashed potatoes to soak up the delicious sauce.

  1. Melt the butter in a pan over medium-low heat and saute the garlic until highly fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the green peas and vegetable broth. Increase the heat to medium-high and cook the mixture until the peas are tender but not shriveled, about 4 minutes total.
  3. Stir in the parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

We thought these were very good with a delightful garlic/butter flavor that we really enjoyed. I cut this in half for the 2 of us and still had another 2 servings left over. I'll make this one again as Green peas are one of my favorites. thanks for sharing.

I made this with rice and I liked it. I used canned peas but everything else as listed. I did feel like it was missing something though I'm not sure what. I will try to make it with mashed potatoes next time. Thanks for sharing.

I will have to try making this again. Somehow it just didn't come out right last night, but it has a lot of potential. I just love the buttery/garlic sauce, although I did burn the butter a bit. And I used fresh peas from the farmers market, but they didn't have much flavor! :( Next time I will use frozen peas. I look forward to trying this recipe again.
