A quick, easier, healthier, and sweeter alternative to mashed potatoes. I first ate these at an Irish restaurant in Singapore and fell in love!

  • 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.

Not bad at all but I prefer them without the mint because I like to cover them in gravy but I did try them with mint and they were quite good I just prefer them with gravy. Red gravy is best but there good with beef and chicken gravy too.;) Read More

This is a great side dish for chicken and fish. I followed the recipe exatly and it came out perfectly. I know one of the reviewers ommitted the mint but I disagree as the mint is what makes this dish so flavorful. Read More

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 coming from someone who doesn't cook well or even like cooking! This Will be on my table again. Thanks so much for glamming up my peas. Read More

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. Read More

These were delicious and oh so easy! We boiled the frozen peas before cooking in the oil to make them extra mashable. The brown sugar added that perfect amount of sweetness to the already sweet peas! Will cook these again and again! Thanks!! Read More

These are really good and I don't even like cooked peas. I made them ahead for St. Patrick's Day to see if I like them better cold or warm. I had a problem smashing the peas with a fork but then I used a flat bottom drinking glass and that seemed to work great for squishing the peas. Read More
