Emeril's Minty Green Peas
Emeril Lagasse's Thanksgiving Sides
Thanksgiving isn't just about the turkey; the side dishes can make or break a fabulous holiday meal. So, as part of his weeklong cook up to Turkey Day, Emeril Lagasse shows you how to get the most out of your side dishes.
Melt the butter in a 1-quart saucepan over medium-high heat.
Add the onions and cook, stirring, until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the peas and water and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover the saucepan and simmer until tender, about 4 minutes.
Remove from the heat, add the salt and mint and stir. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the peas to serving plates. Serve hot.
Yield: 3 cups
