Mushrooms with Peas and Tomatoes
I adapted this quick side from Sara Foster’s Fresh Every Day cookbook. I love its earthy flavours and bright colours.
SERVES 6 TO 8
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
- 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
- 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) sliced cremini mushrooms
- 1 pint (500 mL) cherry tomatoes
- 3 cups (750 mL) fresh or frozen peas
- Salt and pepper to taste
In a large saucepan, melt butter with oil over medium-high heat. Sauté onion until just softened, about 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and sauté, stirring frequently, until soft and golden, about 5 more minutes. Add cherry tomatoes and sauté a few more minutes. Add peas and cook, stirring, until tomatoes and peas are soft but peas are still bright green, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
