When I’m prepping for dinner, there’s always that one thing I’m excited to make that gets almost all of my attention and time. The meal hinges around it, and so I really want to nail it. But what of the sides? Having a list of 5-minute side dishes has been so helpful, so I can finish the thing I want to focus on, and whip up a delicious side before the main goes cold.
One of my few 5-minute side dishes that gets cooked, this pea recipe comes together just as quick as any other and with a great, fresh flavor. This side could also just be a jumping off point. So many variations can be made by only adding a few more seconds. One of mine (noted in the recipe below) is to add a couple teaspoons of wasabi powder. Really tasty and goes amazing with steak or beef roast of any kind.
If using frozen peas for this dish, you could thaw them first but you don’t need to. If you go right into the pan with frozen peas, just keep that heat up and toss frequently. It may add a minute or so to the cooking time, but it’ll still turn out great.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.
