Meatless Monday: Spiced Peas with Cilantro and Lime

I love citrus and spice- especially in the Summer. Peas are healthy and have such a wonderful creamy and satisfying texture- alot like mashed potatoes. Serve this unexpected dish as a side at your next BBQ or dinner party and it'll knock your guests' socks off!
1 1/2 lbs. fresh peas in the pod shelled (about 2 cups) or 2 cups frozen peas
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic (sliced)
1/2 tsp. curry powder
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1 tsp. fresh lime juice

If using fresh peas, fill a large saucepan with salted water and bring to a boil. Add the peas and cook until just tender, 3-5 minutes. Drain. Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the peas, garlic, curry powder and 1/4 tsp. salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and warmed through, 2-3 minutes. Add cilantro and lime juice. Toss to combine.
