As far as pantry staples go, we’re pretty sure most people have a can of peas sitting in the cupboard or frozen peas chilling in the fridge. Though they are perfect to serve on their own as a simple side, these dishes make the little green guys the star of the show. All we are saying is give peas a chance!
Smashed Pea Toast
Who said avocados should get all the glory when it comes to toast? This pea version of the classic is more sophisticated, in our opinion.
Pea Pesto Pasta
We’re not sure if we’re getting tongue-tied from trying to say “pea pesto pasta” or because we’re salivating from this deliciousness!
Perky Pea Soup
This list would be completely incomplete without the mention of pea soup. Top it off with some crispy peas to add texture and crunch.
Summer Pea Salad
There’s something about peas that just symbolizes summer, so naturally, they work wonderfully in salads. The freshness of the peas pairs beautifully with the sweet balsamic.
Risotto is pure comfort food, and the only thing that could improve it is peas. It’s basically hap-pea-ness on a plate.
