This week I was trying to come up for air following the Thanksgiving holiday. As we went away, I came home to an empty refrigerator and no food.
The bright side was my family got freshly cooked food every day. Who doesn’t love fresh food over leftovers?
In general, I try to create meals that include a protein, a carbohydrate, a salad, cooked vegetables and fruit, if desired. Several times this week, however, I realized that we were low on prepared vegetables.
In these situations, I always try to have frozen vegetables as a back up.
Here is my fast and easy way to serve frozen peas.
Fresh garlic, crushed
Salt and pepper
Optional: white wine
Put peas in pan and add the other ingredients. Voilà, fast and easy elegant peas.
Here is the picture:
I am a time challenged cook. But, adding wine, fresh garlic and mustard gives humble frozen peas an elegant touch.
