This Market Fresh Cooking recipe is complements of the Farmers’ Market weekly CSA recipe.

The Recipe


  • 1 spring onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups English peas, shelled (about 12 ounces)
  • 6 mint leaves, torn
  • Salt
  • Water


Sauté the spring onion in two tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the shelled peas, a pinch of salt, and enough water to barely cover. Cook over high heat for 2 minutes, then add the torn mint leaves. Continue cooking until the peas are tender, no more than a few minutes. Check for seasoning, and add more salt if needed.
