Chorizo With Baby Peas

I have mentioned earlier, that I like to buy frozen petite pois (baby peas) as I find the kids love them and the skin on the peas are not too tough to eat. They take very little time to cook as they are very tender and sweet.

Chorizo is a dried spanish sausage that is seasoned with spices. Another handy addition to always have in the fridge. You don't need to use a lot at a time. Store the balance in a ziploc plastic bag in the fridge and it will stay good for a really long time.

Method:
In a casserole, heat oil. Add in the garlic and the chorizo and saute till soft. Do not over fry the chorizo or it will get hard and rubbery. Add in the onion and cook till transluscent. Add in the peas and season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook for 5 mins till the peas are done.
