Braised Peas with Dill
- SERVINGS: 8
It may seem that cooking peas for more than a few minutes would destroy their flavor, but this long-simmered dish is not to be missed. Try this cooking method with other vegetables, such as green beans or shredded leafy greens.
- 2/3 cup olive oil
- 3 medium red onions, finely chopped
- Five 10-ounce boxes frozen peas
- 6 cups water
- 1/4 cup chopped dill
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the onions and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened but not browned, about 5 minutes. Add the peas, water and dill and season with a large pinch each of salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then simmer over moderate heat until the water has evaporated and the peas are very tender, about 45 minutes. Serve hot.
Make AheadThe peas can be refrigerated for up to 1 day.
