Let it snow... peas!
No, I'm not even close to craving winter yet, but I do love a tasty abundance of snow peas!
Like snap peas, snow peas fall under the mangetout category, which is French for eat the whole darn thing.
So don't go shelling any of our peas this year, as we only grow snow and snap peas, and their pods are just as delectable as the tiny pea inside.
Now, most folks just eat peas as is, which is what I assume happens when the container empties itself, as if by magic, on the way back from picking up the CSA share.
As a fellow raw food lover, no judgement here. After all, it is a great way to keep all the healthy attributes intact.
Snow and snap peas are packed with vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, potassium, dietary fiber, magnesium and folic acid, making them a very healthy snack option.
But these lovely little members of the legume family are also great as part of a meal.
I just love this recipe from the Kitchn, not only because it comes together in just a few minutes, but also because it only has a few ingredients, most of which I have in my pantry at any given time.
Now that's what I call easy peas.
