- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 small onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, diced
- Pinch of red pepper flakes
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 pound bag frozen peas, thawed
- 1 tablespoon sliced fresh mint
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Melt the butter in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Once melted and foamy, add the onion, garlic, and red pepper flakes and saute until tender, about 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the heavy cream and let thicken, stirring for just 1 minute.
Add the peas and the mint and cook until the peas are bright green and warmed through, another 5 minutes.
