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.
