Reviews for Green Peas with Onion
"Very good, however I saute the onions in olive oil in lieu of butter, for a much more dramatic taste."
"Yep, tastes like peas and onions. Nothing special. They are quick to prepare though."
"These were good and simple. Loved the addition of onion and garlic."
"Nice change from the plain-ol' boiled green peas. Much more flavorful."
"This is one that I will definitely make again. Wonderful flavor and easy to prepare. Had it with Italian Pork Chops as a flavorful side dish."
"This is a simple but flavorful way to give your veggies some oomph!! I've been using this cooking method for a while now - it's wonderful with the green peas, but also great with green beans and broccoli. No more water-logged boring veggies!! Try it!"
