Spring Peas

Prep Time:
15 Min


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small sweet onion, diced
  • 1 cup fresh shelled green peas
  • 1/2 cup low sodium, low fat vegetable broth
  • 1/2 pound sugar snap peas, trimmed
  • 1/2 pound snow peas, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 medium head radicchio


  1. In a medium skillet, melt the butter over medium low heat. Add the onion and saute until transparent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the green peas and the broth, and cook for about 3 minutes. Add the snap peas, snow peas and parsley, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook, covered, for about 3 more minutes.
  2. Remove the inner leaves from the radicchio and spread the outer leaves out to make a bowl. Fill the hollow with the pea mixture and garnish with additional Italian parsley.
