Peas with Mint

This goes very well with lamb, and together makes a meal that to me tastes like spring.


2 cups peas (1 package frozen)
2 T butter or ghee
1 leek, thinly sliced
1/4 c meat broth
1/4 c coarsely chopped mint
1-2 cloves of garlic, crushed, optional

Melt the butter or ghee in a skillet, and saute the leeks a few minutes, until soft.
Add the peas (they can be added frozen).  Pour in the stock, add the garlic and stir, then cover and reduce heat.

Cook for 5-10 minutes, or until the peas are nearly done.  Add the mint, and put the cover back on.  Cook another 2-3 minutes until the mint has wilted.
