Baby red potatoes with sweet peas and pan-fried mint

Here’s a wonderful way to enjoy sweet peas! First, fresh mint leaves are pan-fried until crisp. While they cook, the leaves release their flavor right into the butter, which is then used to sauté the baby potatoes and the sweet peas – thus infusing the whole dish with a subtle minty aroma. As a last touch, the pan-fried leaves are scattered on top of the veggies just before serving, adding a delicate, crisp bite to the dish.

All in all, this is an extremely versatile and easy-to-make side dish that the whole family can enjoy!

You have me at crisp mint leaves! I did some fried celery leaves before, but didn’t know you can do the same with mint too. This is a wonderful recipe to use red potatoes and peas.
