Minty Peas & Onions

8 ingredients
6 servings
I have served this delicious side dish many times over the years. The original recipe came from one of my favorite community cookbooks,"Enough to Feed an Army." I usually serve this as an accompaniment to lamb as the mint flavor blends quite nicely with lamb. If you are in a hurry, you can simply melt the butter in the pan and proceed wthout waiting for it to brown. Since mint plays a major role in this recipe, is it highly recommend that you stick with fresh rather than dried mint. Tip: I snip my mint leaves with kitchen shears.
