I'm not sure if everyone knows my love for peas. I have a bag or two of frozen in my freezer at all times. They are sweet, add such nice color to dishes and are cute. That cute comment is a serious one. Peas make the composition of dishes look much better, and I love the taste. Fresh peas in spring are a real treat. Here are a few pea recipes I will be making in the coming weeks. Let me know if you try one and what you think!
Toast with lemony pea mash from Bon Appetit magazine. I cannot WAIT to make this. Also something you could make ahead for a party/cocktail spread which is nice.
Springtime frittata from Yummly. Frittatas are a great weeknight dish. Scrambled eggs in a more civilized form. This also makes a great leftover lunch on its own or served on top of arugula with a little vinaigrette.
This Minty Pea Soup from Bon Appetit looks so light and springy. Reminds me of a dish served at a bridal or baby shower, ladies lunching in the best possible way.
Ina's Pesto Pea Salad is amazing. My mother in law made it a few years ago and I still remember it. A great spring/summer side dish with grilled chicken or by itself for a light dinner maybe even enjoyed while sitting outside!
