Our favorite Christmas dinner is serving the sauteed green peas alongside Roasted Beef Tenderloin, Creamy Scalloped Potatoes, and a bright red and green Panzanella Salad.  It’s a simple, yet elegant meal that’s delicious and won’t take all day to prepare.

Ingredients Needed

  • Butter – I used salted butter, but if you have sweet or unsalted butter, increase the salt to taste.
  • Olive oil – this helps raise the smoke point of the butter.  
  • Shallots – milder in flavor than onions.  If onions are what you have, be sure to mince them as fine as possible and soak them in ice water for 20 minutes and drain well before sauteeing.  This will help remove some of the ‘onion bite’ flavor.
  • Garlic
  • Petite green peas – fresh is wonderful if you can find them.  If not use frozen, but thaw them first.
  • Salt and pepper
