Sweet Peas with Onions
⅔ cup water
1 cup whole white baby onions (fresh or frozen) or 1 cup diced onion
½ tsp. salt
2 tbsp. butter
¼ tsp. each salt and pepper
4 cups of fresh, frozen or canned green peas (If using canned peas, simply cook peas 1-2 minutes when added to onions until warmed through.)

Bring water, onion, and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a boil in a medium saucepan. Cover pan and reduce heat to medium; simmer, stirring occasionally, until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high and stir in butter and peas; cover and cook,
stirring occasionally, until peas are tender, about 8 minutes. Season to taste with remaining salt and pepper.
