Ingredients

  • 4 good handfuls peas
  • ½ wineglass white wine
  • ½ wineglass water
  • 2 good knobs butter
  • 1 handful fresh mint leaves
 

Method

Whether you are using fresh or frozen peas, for 4 people you need to put 4 good handfuls of peas into a wide frying pan or casserole-type pan which has a lid (or you can use tinfoil), with ½ a wineglass of white wine, ½ a wineglass of water and 2 good knobs of butter. Place the lid on top and bring to the boil, then remove the lid and simmer for a minute or two while you finely slice a handful of mint leaves. With this reasonably small amount of liquid, the butter and wine should form a fantastically simple sauce. Throw in the mint at the last minute and serve straight away. Don't forget that it only takes a handful of grated Parmesan cheese and some cooked tagliatelle to turn these peas into a wonderful pasta dish. Or you can add them to a risotto, or whiz them up with some chicken stock to make a fine pea soup.
