Pea Recipes: Give Peas a Chance #Healthy Eating #Weekly Menu Plan

Yum
Indian Rice: Peas and Onions
Indian Rice: Peas and Onions 

Peas are a funny vegetable. People seem to love them or hate them. I never got the hating them idea... they are so mild and the texture is pleasant... not bitter, not stringy... what's not to like? Also did you know that peas are high in vitamin C and A, so I say

Give peas a chance!

  4. Our peas are almost ready in our spring garden, they are so delicious. Sometimes I will just eat a handful of peas right off the vine. We love our peas here at the cottage and these are great recipes! Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday today, it is great to have you at the party. Hope you have a very special week and come back soon!

  5. My husband considers peas one of his favorite veggies, but I'm not a fan. I will have to give some of these recipes a try to see if I can find one we will both like!
