Chives is one of the things that thrive in my garden, so while looking for ways to use them I came across this interesting way to serve peas. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (May 2004)

  2. Add shallots and saute until tender (3-5 minutes).

Wonderful. What a simply and tasty way to liven up frozen peas. I'll be making this again. Thanks Ellie. Made for the May Herb Spice of the Month.

This is a flavorful side dish, and it's very simple to make. I liked the double onion flavor from the shallots and chives. Thanks for sharing!
