Food52 Review: WHO: KitchenButterfly is a food blogger and photographer who lives in Nigeria.
WHAT: Spring peas, jazzed up.
HOW: After a quick saute, the peas are left in a bath of vinegars, salt, garlic, mint, and chile overnight.
WHY WE LOVE IT: These have just the right combination of sweet and sour; the peas' sweetness plays off the tartness of the vinegars and the garlic and chile add lots of flavor and heat. They'd lend great bites of flavor to a simple salad or make an easy snack. Plus, they're easy (peasy) to make! —The Editors
teaspoon vegetable/peanut oil
cup shelled peas, rinsed and well drained
teaspoon (sea) salt
teaspoon dried mint
tablespoons White wine vinegar
tablespoons sherry vinegar
tablespoon caster sugar
garlic clove, peeled and smashed
red chilies, chopped and deseeded (if you like)
- In a pan, heat up the oil and add the peas. Stir-fry for 3-4 minutes till the peas change colour and brighten. Turn off heat.
- Add the dried mint and a pinch of salt to taste, followed by the vinegars, sugar, garlic and chopped red chilies
- Stir well so all the ingredients are well mixed. Adjust seasoning to taste.
- Pour in a clean jar and leave overnight for the flavours to blend and marry.
- Serve on a bed of lettuce with tomatoes and oven-fresh/bakery fresh bread!
