Caramelized peas with onions


By Dr. Antonella Grima

This side dish is very easy to prepare, is ready in minutes and is both tasty and nutritious. Onions contain vitamins B6 and C, minerals such as potassium, as well as dietary fibre. Peas are excellent sources of fibre, vitamins A and C and contain good amounts of iron, potassium, vitamin B6  and magnesium. Rapeseed oil is low in saturated fat and high in unsaturated fats, including Omega-3 fatty acids.
Brown the onion in 2 tablespoons of rapeseed oil
Add 1 tablespoon honey and 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Add peas (around 1 cup per serving), keep cooking on low heat until peas start browning and are tender
