Peas recipes


How to cook peas?

Dry peas must be prepared before eating, otherwise they are very indigestible. Therefore, as in most legumes, they should be soaked overnight.

The best way to cook green peas is to do this process with a little water to prevent water to drag the vitamins. It is also important to reduce cooking time. Steaming can better maintain the properties of this vegetable food.

It is ideal to eat them tender, when very young, in salads with other vegetables or accompany them with boiled cereals.

Green peas can be eaten in many dishes: omelet, stewed, in salad, stir-fried, boiled with potatoes, etc.
