Green Peas with Sauteed Onions are a fantastic side dish to spruce up this everyday veggie.
My mother-in-law introduced me to simply adding sauteed onions to green peas years ago at my first Thanksgiving with my then boryfriend/now husband. Now, I don’t even like to eat peas without the onions. They add such a wonderful carmelized flavor to an otherwise boring side dish.
All you have to do is chop a large onion and saute it in coconut oil or butter (or a little or both) on medium-low until the onion is nice and brown.
Drain the peas after cooking them to your desired tenderness. Speaking of that. How do you like your peas cooked? I like them really cooked if I have my way. My mother-in-law cooks them a little al-dente.
