Mashed Green Peas
1 16-ounce package frozen peas (I use Cascadian Farms organic peas)
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon sea or kosher salt and several grinds of the pepper mill
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons cream (could substitute milk)
Bring peas to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook over low heat for 5-7 minutes or until peas are tender.
Add olive oil, cream, salt, and pepper. Mash thoroughly with a potato masher. You could also puree in a food processor, but I think the masher does the job and requires less clean up!
