I found this recipe on The Worlds Healthiest Foods website. Peas are delicious and coming in season. Great substitute for mashed potatoes. One serving contains 53% DV for thiamin, 48% Vitamin C and 48% Vitamin E. This was easy to prepare and really delicious. I had some left over for lunch the next day.
8 oz. frozen peas (perferably organic)
1 medium chopped onion
2 medium chopped garlic cloves
1 or 2 tbs chicken or vegetable broth
2 tbs. of sunflower seeds
1 tbl. minced fresh herbs, mint, basil, chervil, or parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
Chop onions and garlic andlet sit fo r5 minutes to bring out their health promoting properties.
Heat 1 tbs. of broth in 10 inch skillet. Healthy saute onion in broth over medium heat for 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until translucent. Add garlic and saute for another minute.
Add 2 tbs. broth, peas, and herbs and cook until tender about 3 more minutes. Puree in blender with sunflower seeds. Season with Salt and Pepper. Serves two.
Note: Make sure you blend the peas well, scraping the side of the blender. You want the sunflower seeds to become well ground. They add body and you want them smooth.
