8 Ways to Get Your Peas

By • May 28, 2014 • 2 Comments

“Eat your peas!” your parents probably scolded you when you were a child. Peas were always the trickiest vegetable to avoid, given their small size and the way they snuck in among tasty items, like noodles and chicken. Nothing was safe.

But it’s high time to give peas a chance. Though the flavorful little seeds are often used as a side, peas can also handle the spotlight as the main dish. And if you ever figure out an efficient technique for eating peas with a fork, please share your magical ways with us.

What am I doing wrong that I can never get my peas smooth when pureed? The result aways has an unpleasant texture due to the outer layer of the pea (Not the peapod, just the pea itself).

Milk peas?! What a great idea! I'm definitely going to try that out with some noodles!
