I throw them into any Stir Fry if I don't have snow peas for green.

blanch the peas, drain and put into bowl.
boil 3-4 eggs, peel, dice, and add to the peas.
dice half of a purple onion
shred a handful romaine lettuce
salt, pepper, and a pinch of cayenne
add a large spoon of mayo.
mix well and refigerate. Enjoy

It is a great summer salad



I don't use lettuce in mine, but I include grated cheddar and go heavy on the bacon bits. I was addicted to this salad a few years back. Also, heavy on the diced red onion.

Shameful secret food love:
Ramen noodles (Sapporo Ichiban), frozen peas*, three frozen chicken tenders sliced, sriracha. Yum. The peas and the chicken cook in the boiling liquid. Haven't had it in a couple of years.

*If out of frozen peas, handful of frozen spinach.

Make sure you don't over cook them. I like to dip them straight into an ice bath if you boil them to halt the cooking process.

Are minted peas an english dish? Idk they are awesome though. I like mine with shallots and a light red wine or balsalmic vinaigrette.

Toss some in boiling water with garlic cloves until tender, strain, then apply an immersion blender with freshly chopped mint. It's one of my favorite sides with a thick pork chop.


I saw this thread last week, and finally got around to trying this. I've been looking to add more vegetables to my repertoire (been eating healthier and losing weight), and I honestly never thought of peas. Always hated them because they got in the way of the better foods they were added to (see fried rice or some pasta dishes).

But these were fantastic. The mint is perfect - not overpowering but you're right, it's like they were made for each other. I drizzled some olive oil in the food processor to give them a little more substance, but I bet some half and half would be good too (although we start straying from the healthy aspect here).

So thanks. I definitely will be making these again.

I just used frozen peas tonight. Olive oil, salt, pepper, touch of garlic and cous cous. Word.
