Fresh Peas with Mint

Instead of the same boring veggies, add a touch of flavor to peas with this sweet honey and mint recipe.


  • 1 T trans-fat-free spread
  • 1 cup sliced green onions
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 cups shelled green peas (about 3 1/2 lbs unshelled)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 T honey
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint


Melt spread in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic; sauté for one minute. Add peas, water, broth, honey and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 12 minutes or until peas are tender. Remove from heat; stir in mint. Serve with a slotted spoon.
