Recipe of the Month – Peas, Onions and Mushrooms

Growing up, this was one of my favorite side dishes. Now that I have my own family, I am sad to say they don’t care for peas so I serve this at holiday dinners or make a smaller batch just for me. It also is sometimes referred to as “Company Peas.” The good thing about this recipe is you can easily adjust the ingredient amounts to your personal tastes.

Ingredients

2 T. butter

1 cup minced onions

1 8-oz. package of mushrooms, sliced

1 16-oz package of frozen peas

1/2 t. salt

1/4 t. pepper

Directions

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onions and mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasinally for 4 minutes. Stir in peas and cook until peas are tender (about 8 minutes). Stir in salt and pepper and serve. You can also add a dash of thyme.

Serves 6 to 8
