Peas with Mushrooms


This is really good. I sauteed the onions w/ fresh mushrooms untill tender, then added fresh chopped garlic. Not to make so many dishes and to keep the peas from getting overcooked/mushy and to maintain the vibrant green, I added them frozen to the sauteed mushroom mixture and stirred for a few minutes untill warmed through and cooked to a tender crisp.

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 10 oz package frozen green peas, thawed
  • 4 1⁄2 oz jar sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 1⁄2 tsp salt
  • 1⁄4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 pinch black pepper


  • Cook peas according to package directions. Set aside.
  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic in butter until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the peas and mushrooms, then season with sugar, salt, thyme and pepper. Reduce heat to low, and cook just until heated through.
