Green Pea Mash

Green veggies can be a bit boring, there I said it. There are so many options out there, but making it fun, making it simple, and making it fit into your diet is the challenge. The below recipe is a fast and easy side that you can make instead of the mashed potato standby. Despite its healthy 'tone,' people love this one!

Green Pea Mash

Prep Time: 10 minutes
1 Serving

2/3 Cup Green Peas (Fresh or Frozen)
1 Clove Garlic
1/2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Cook the peas 3-5 minutes on medium heat in 1/4 to 1/2 cup of boiling water until tender. Drain water and place in a food processor or blender. Puree peas with garlic, oil, and add seasonings to taste (from salt & pepper to chili flakes). Serve warm. 

Total time: 10 minutes or less

    I like simplicity and whether it's butternut squash, lima bean, or even carrots, with a few tweaks in the spices you get a completely new, flavorful dish!
