I loved everything about this recipe, except for the cooking of the frozen peas. I recommend putting your frozen peas into a bowl of cold water to thaw for about 20 minutes, drain well, then add to the onion/garlic saute mixture for just a couple minutes to heat through. This way, you'll avoid the wrinkly and mushy look of overcooked frozen peas, and the peas will stay a vibrant green color. The flavor of this dish is great and is a nice change from the same old blah peas. Thanks for sharing the recipe! :) Read More

Let me preface this by saying I am not a big fan of cooked peas....raw & hidden in a salad w/lots of other yummy stuff (and dressing!) is good....cooked bleh! These peas however me likey! These were excellent as well as quick/easy to prepare made w/ingredients readily on hand at our house and an added bonus...good for me!! I cooked according to recipe except I didn't measure oil (dash) onion (1/2 of one...looked like enough and it was thought the whole onion would not have been too much either) or garlic (lots and lots of pre-minced). I also panicked a little and added some extra broth because it didn't "seem" like enough (it would have been...that's what the recipe is for moron). One caveat my peas ended a little on the mushy side because of my own timing....I tried to let them sit (covered still) while the rest of the meal caught up....so I recommend serving immediately. Thanks for a great veggie side easy enough for weeknights but respectable enough for guests too. Read More

I love this reciPEA. I like to cook my peas in the microwave so they can keep their pop. When I say Cook I mean defrost. I poured the chicken stock over my peas and defrosted them for a few minutes. After I sauteed the onion and garlic I poured it over the peas. I let it marinate for a few minutes before serving. My three year old loved it. Read More

These peas were very tasty. I didn't want to open a can of chicken broth to use only one tablespoon, so I used water and sprinkled in a few chicken boullion granuals. I took the advise of other reviewers and topped the peas with freshly grated Parm. Very good recipe, thank you. Read More

Very tasty and elegant way to serve peas. I had only canned peas so used 2 cans. It would have been better with frozen as the recipe states. I used a regular yellow onion and 1/2 of it would have been plenty. A whole Vidalia or other nicely flavored onion would be best as the is the predominant taste of this dish. Instead of the chicken broth I used a whole bouillon cube dissolved in 1/3 cup water and used the whole thing. Extra salt was not needed. Very nice easy and versatile side dish! Thanks! Read More

Wow I was surprised at how good this simple recipe turned out. My family has never been a fan of peas so I was looking for a way to make them taste a little different...this recipe was it. I did have frozen corn leftover from another recipe so I put it in the last 2 minutes to heat. Hubby ate 2 helpings (so did I)! Next time I'd like to try it with a little crumbled bacon. Read More

Very good for what it is - simple peas with onions and garlic. The problem here is the cooking time - 10 minutes? No; just long enough to heat through. Read More

Sometimes I sprinkle parm cheese on top and sometimes I stir in a little heavy cream. Read More

The best peas I've ever had. I followed the recommendation of using chicken bouillon dissolved in water in lieu of the broth. Very tasty! Read More
