Perfect Peas!

Peas are the kind of dish your mom makes you eat, right? Or peas are the part of the fried rice you eat around. And sometimes peas make a brief yet unwanted appearance in soup?

The truth is peas can take the center stage of Springtime meals and be delicious – not just a boring side dish. Peas can even be a sweet dessert – like in these beautiful Sweet Pea and Ricotta Cupcakes I came across from The Cupcake Project!

 

Here are a few of the most interesting ways I have seen to serve up some fresh (or even frozen) peas this Spring:

Minted Pea Puree Crostini from Claire Robinson

Spring Pea Frittata

Savory Sauteed Sweet Peas from The Overtime Cook


Green Pea Guacamole


Pasta with Fresh Herbs, Lemon and Peas
