  • Heat the oil in the saucepan. Add the fennel, cover and cook over moderate heat, stirring a few times, until slightly softened, about 4 minutes. Add all of the peas and stir until warmed through. Remove from the heat. Stir in the butter and season with salt and pepper. Stir in the chives and serve.
