Peas are good, but these peas are awesome. Serve as an alternative to mashed potatoes. . . Without any added fat!

Smashed Pepper Peas 

3/4 cup (180 ml) vegetable broth
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
2 tablespoons (30 g) prepared horseradish
2 tablespoons (30 g) mild Dijon mustard
1 to 2 teaspoons ground black pepper to taste
1 pound (454 g) fresh or frozen peas, thawed
Salt to taste

BRING BROTH to a boil. Reduce to a simmer. Add onion and garlic, cover, and cook over medium-low heat for 20 minutes, or until vegetables are soft and most of the liquid has been absorbed.

Stir in horseradish, mustard, pepper, and peas. Heat through. Using a blender or food processor, purée until mostly smooth but still a little chunky. Add salt to taste.

YIELD: 4 to 6 servings
