    After having read through all the reviews here's what I did: Reduced the chicken broth and sugar in half then brought to a boil. Added the frozen peas, one shallot sliced into crescent and one small sprig of rosemary, leaves removed and minced. Reduced heat and cooked for about 2-3 minutes until the liquid had evaporated, onion just started to soften and the peas cooked through but maintained their bright green color. Removed from heat, [lightly] drizzled with extra virgin olive oil, seasoned with salt and cracked black pepper, topped with a rosemary sprig and garnished with the pine nuts. I think the reason for the sugar is to lightly caramelize the onion...not sure about that however. Reviewed for Veg Tag/June.

    Nice way to make peas. After reading the other reviews, I too skipped the broth, onions, and sugar. I used the rosemary option and loved the addition of the pine nuts. Thanks smellyvegetarian for a nice side dish. Made for ZWT7 for the Emerald City Shakers.

    This is a really great recipe! I loved the combination of pine nuts and peas. I cheated a little bit, though: I kept the onion, because I thought it would be a waste to throw it out, and added some garlic to taste (not too much though). I hope that doesn't bother anyone. I did use quite a bit of rosemary.
