Minty Baby Peas Recipe- Easy, Gluten Free, Allergy Friendly, and Vegan

I had this recipe in my to post list for almost two months, but forgot about posting it until I purchased more baby peas and was going to make it for dinner tonight. Baby peas are much tastier, in my opinion, than regular peas. They are sweet and tender, and if prepared right, completely not mealy.

When I was a kid I hated peas. Like really really hated them. But there was one way my mom would make them that I enjoyed, and I shared that recipe here (back when I was 9 months pregnant with Anneliese!). Then I grew up and my taste buds matured and now I like peas all ways, and will even eat canned peas as a snack. But baby peas are still my favorite type of peas, and in my opinion, are things even pea haters may like. They don't need so much flavor and definitely should not be cooked a lot, or they will get mealy. This recipe uses only a light amount of seasoning to highlight the baby peas' delicious flavors. I hope you enjoy it.

This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, allergy friendly, and vegan, and it is a delightful side dish.

Minty Baby Peas Recipe- Easy, Gluten Free, Allergy Friendly, and Vegan

800 gram frozen baby peas
1 cup water
2 tablespoon olive oil
1-2 teaspoons salt
2-4 sprigs mint (or to taste)

1. Put all the ingredients into a pan other than the mint.

2. Put the pan on a low heat until they are completely defrosted.

3. Continue cooking, stirring often, until they are the desired doneness. For me this is about 3-4 minutes.

4. Strain.

5. Chop up your mint leaves and add them to your peas.

Voila, all done!


Serve hot or cold or room temperature, doesn't matter!

Are you a pea fan or not? Have you had baby peas? What is your favorite way to prepare peas?
