17 Perfect Pea Recipes


Spring time is here!

I don’t know about you, but spring time for me always means that most of my meals focus on two different vegetables: Asparagus and Peas. However, I always struggle coming up with fun meals that use these two veggies. I go crazy if I eat the same foods in the same way.  

This year is different. I am determined to eat Asparagus and Peas in a variety of fun, healthy recipes. I already wrote a post with 17 healthy Asparagus recipes. Now it’s time for Peas! These are all meals that use Sugar Snap Peas, Snow Peas, or some kind of variety of Pea pods. This does NOT include Chickpeas, Black-eyed Peas, etc. Those will be in a future post, I promise. 

One of the best ways to get fresh peas, of course, is to grow your own. Click here to see my post on How to Grow Peas. Peas are a delight in the garden; they are one of the first vegetables you can start eating and they are pretty easy to grow! I hope you give them a try in your gardens this year! 

17 Healthy and Perfect Pea Recipes

I worked hard to come up with pea recipes that were healthy and also gave me a variety of options. I refuse to eat simple steamed peas again. There is too much creativity in the world for plain, steamed peas! Here are the 17 healthy and perfect pea recipes that I found. Please feel free to comment below if you have another one. I might just add it!
