Ingredients
2
teaspoons olive oil
1/4
cup sliced green onion
1
14 ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth
2
teaspoons cornstarch
2
cups shelled fresh peas or one 10-ounce package frozen peas, thawed
1
tablespoon snipped fresh mint
1
tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
 
Lemon slices

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan. Cook and stir green onion over medium heat for 30 seconds or until soft. Add all but 2 tablespoons of the chicken broth. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cook, covered, over medium-low heat for 5 minutes.
