This recipe might sound boring, but the bacon imparts a delicious, savoury flavour into the peas. It's lovely with boiled ham, but also delicious as cold left-overs the next day, or try adding it to macaroni cheese.
All of the ingredients that you will need. Note the frozen shallots - so much easier then chopping them yourself.

It doesn't look very appetising at this stage, but it does improve.
Peas, bacon, and plenty of water
1 x 15 ml garlic infused oil
250g thick-cut bacon, cut into small chunks
1 Echalion or banana shallot, finely chopped (I use frozen, ready chopped shallots)
750g frozen peas
75 ml white wine
500 ml water
Fresh parsley, chopped
The liquid is starting to thicken up, and it smells very good.
Almost there, just a little longer to wait.
The finished peas - savoury, and delicious.
