I love peas and this dish is a favorite of mine. Featuring cipollini onions it makes a beautiful presentation.
1 Cup Peeled Cipollini Onions (8 Ounces)
1/2 Cup Butter
1/4 Cup Water
1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
2 Teaspoons Chopped Basil
2 Teaspoons Chopped Cilantro
1/4 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
2 Packages Organic Frozen Peas (10 Ounces Each) Thawed
2 Cups Shredded Cabbage
In a medium size pot bring 6 cups of water to a boil. Add the peeled cipollini onions and cook for only 3 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water. Set aside. In the same pot melt the butter over a low heat. Add the cipollini onions, water, kosher salt, basil, cilantro and pepper. Stir and cook for 2 minutes. Add the thawed peas and the shredded cabbage. Give a good stir and cook for 10 minutes over a medium heat. Remove from the heat and transfer to a serving bowl. Serve warm. Serves 6
Hint: I sometimes like to cheat and buy pre-peeled cipollini onions. Sometimes a gal just gets a bit lazy!
