Best Sweet Peas

Sweet Peas

Sweet peas are healthy though not exactly low carb.

Growing up I never liked sweet peas.

I think it was because too often they were overcooked and mushy.  If you didn’t like them either try them like this. It’s a common way to make them but it’s important to not overcook/warm them, use salt and freshly ground pepper, and real butter.  Please don’t use the already ground pepper for this.

Canned sweet peas are already cooked so you just want to warm them up and don’t want to cook them more than they are already cooked.

Open the can of peas and drain off the liquid.

Put the peas in a microwave safe bowl, add the butter and microwave for about 1 minute or until they are hot.

Stir and season with salt and freshly ground pepper and serve.

Tip for making them even better.  Serve with a side of steak!

Yum
