Sweet Buttered Basil Petit Peas
This is the time of year when I really start craving the fresh, sweet vegetables of spring. Hearty winter vegetables are wonderful and all, but the anticipation of spring vegetables always seems to creep a bit early. We still have at least a month before asparagus starts popping up. With that said, frozen petite peas provide a good fresh, green replacement when we’re still in the middle of the cold months. Here’s a dish that’s great with fresh basil, if you have it (maybe on a window sill?). You could crush up some dried basil between your palms if you’re in a pinch.
