Tarragon Peas Recipes

In the Nightingale by Kristin Hannah, the meal Vianne prepared in Chapter 2 for Antoine and Sophie sounded amazing. Here is how the peas were described: “a bowl of fresh peas, swimming in butter seasoned with tarragon from the garden.”

Prep: 10 minutes (if shelling peas) | Cook: 3 minutes | Yield: 8 servings

Peas_with_Tarragon (1)


  • 2 pounds of fresh peas, shelled or 2-1/2 cups of frozen peas
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons of chopped tarragon leaves or 3 teaspoons of dried tarragon
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. In large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter.
  2. Stir in the peas and cook for 3 minutes until just tender.
  3. Stir in tarragon and add salt and pepper to taste.
