DH and myself enjoyed this dish, the mint flavor really adds an intense flavor to the peas, although my DS was not fussy about it, thanks for sharing echo!...Kitten:)

Great taste and very different way to serve peas. Great green color. I am thinking St Patty's Day! There was not enough water in this to cook on the stovetop in my opinion- after 5 minutes the peas were still frozen in the middle- so i put them in a bowl and mw'd them for 2 minutes. They came out great- so I will use the micro for these next time. Would be great with some fresh or dried mint added too! Thanks for a great recipe!

I had to try this unusual recipe! So easy, a quick way to jazz up frozen peas. The creme de menthe just gives a hint of mint without alcohol flavor or much sweetness. The liquid is a vibrant green which the kids found entertaining as well as delicious. That's always worth 5 stars at my house! Thanks, eebrag!
