Changin’ it Up – Onion Peas

At this point in the winter I get so. sick. of. frozen. vegetables.

I will, on occasion, buy fresh ones (and I am a sucker for roasted carrots all winter long!) and eat a salad, too.  However, a) they never last long, and often spoil before I can eat it all and b) are usually MUCH more expensive than in the spring/summer/fall.

Alas, it’s frozen veggies for me.

Need something just a little *different* with your peas?  Try to onion-them-up with this cheap, easy, and fast trick.

Here are the instructions:

Melt 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter, adding 1 teaspoon of onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon of dried minced onion, 1/2 teaspoon of salt.   (You can do this with this with salted butter, just don’t add in any salt.) Mix it well with a fork after melted.

Stir the butter mixture with 2 cups of already cooked/prepared peas and you have it! Seriously, I could eat the whole two cups on my own! I’m not complaining about eating my peas any longer.
