Peas are “green” little orb powerhouses of protein, B vitamins and a variety of minerals. They are also a good source of vitamins C and K and carotene. But most importantly - garden peas are F-U-N to eat!!!!
My 3 year old granddaughter announced proudly while shucking peas “I’m a good pea-er, right Gramma!” Absolutely. (Much laughter.)
Poppa’s job was to unzip the peas (remove the strings), split them open and pass them to Lyla. “Don’t take the peas out, Poppa. I’ll do it”
Lyla was enthralled, picking the peas out of the pod, eating one and putting one into the bowl.
Of course, Lyla polished off ALL of the peas in the bowl for dinner. “More, please.” It was a super fun way to get her ‘hands-on” with the food she was eating.
Tonight I’ll be making RAW PIZZA for dinner and sprinkling some of those fresh garden peas on top. I’m guessing some of those peas will roll off the table and onto the floor, just like in the “On Top of Spaghetti” song. I’ll post a photo of my pizzas and post a raw pea soup recipe soon.
Peas to you!
