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


  1. 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.
  2. Add the peas and the mint and cook until the peas are bright green and warmed through, another 5 minutes.
