Prep time 5 mins
Cook time 7 mins
Yield Makes 8 servings
This dish is equally good without ginger, so if you don't have or don't like it, leave it out.


  • 1 (16-ounce) package frozen green peas
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange rind
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 6 ingredients and ginger, if desired, in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 3 minutes. Remove and discard ginger. Serve with a slotted spoon.
