  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet, and cook and stir the frozen peas, mint leaves, and green onions until the peas are hot and tender but still bright green, 7 to 10 minutes. Pour the peas into a bowl, and mash until the peas are thoroughly crushed but still slightly chunky. Stir in the butter, brown sugar, and salt and pepper, and mix until the sugar has dissolved. Serve warm or cold.

OMGness! I turned leftover buttered peas (I like them but also get tired of them) into an amazing side. There's only enough left for me and I'm hoping that no one else wants any. All this, comin...

Good recipe to make green peas even more flavorful, but I can't understand why you would want to mash them. They taste great even without the mashing.
