I’m always looking for ways to dress up veggies so when I saw this recipe in Real Simple Magazine I knew I had to try it.
Peas are one of those foods I discovered after having kids. I don’t know why but I never made peas much. It could have to do with the fact that my husband was forced to eat them as a kid. When his parents weren’t looking, he’d stuff them in the couch. Not a lot of good memories for him!
Peas have a sweet taste and are full of nutrition — vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, fiber, and potassium to name a few. They make the perfect finger food for toddlers. Because they are not bitter like other green vegetables, they are a good starter vegetable for kids.
How do you make peas at home?
- 16-ounce frozen peas
- ½ cup grated Parmesan
- 2 TBS fresh lemon juice
- 2 TBS olive oil
- ½ tsp kosher salt
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- Cook the frozen peas according to package directions, then mix the rest of the ingredients: parmesan, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
