1 clove of garlic smashed
1/4 cup Baco's ( soy bacon tasting product ) or to taste
OR a real meat bone, bacon or sausage- see recipe below

Place frozen peas in sauce pot with chopped onion, garlic, broth , Baco's and seasonings. Bring to boil then cover and simmer about 30 minutes or until beans are tender. Remove from heat covered and let beans absorb any excess liquid. Serves 6.

Turkey sausage is a good substitute for those who don't eat pork products. Omit any meat for vegetarian recipe.
