Easy Smashed Peas

Recipe type: Vegetables

Prep time:  10 mins Cook time:  5 mins Total time:  15 mins Serves: 4


Smashed peas cooked simply with butter and lemon juice makes a perfect appetizer.





Ingredients

2 Tbsp unsalted butter

2 cups fresh peas

1 Tbsp chopped fresh oregano

Salt and pepper, to taste

Juice of half a lemon

Serve with crusty sourdough bread


Method

Place peas in a food processor and using the pulse button, smash them up. Do not purée them, as it is important to retain much of the texture. In a sauté pan over medium heat melt butter until foamy. Add crushed peas, stir in chopped oregano, and add salt and pepper to taste. Cook peas over medium-high heat for about 4 minutes until just tender. Stir in lemon juice, taste and adjust seasoning. Serve with buttered crusty bread.
