Simple guide to prepare peas vegetables.
For the pea vegetables made from fresh garden peas
For the peas vegetables from frozen peas
For the pea vegetables with cream
Get fresh peas from the market or use frozen peas.
I bought one kilogram of peas (uncleaned pea pods) for two people.
Fresh peas preparation
Open the pea pods and pee the peas.
Cook the peas in boiling salted water until al dente and then drain on a sieve.
Cool the Peluschken either with cold water or ice water and heat them up later or prepare them directly…
Sway the peas in butter and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
Prepare the peas for serving.
Frozen peas Preparation
Pour the frozen peas directly into boiling salted water, cook until al dente, let cool in ice water or prepare and serve immediately.
Prepare peas with cream
Reduce the cream by half and season to taste with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
Before serving, toss the peas in the cream and heat, then serve.

3. Tips to Prepare Peas
First things first… fresh or frozen peas are deliciously green. If you want to keep the green colour, you can only cook the garden peas for a short time without a lid.
We know the typical grey colour from cooked canned peas. This vegetable is only an option in emergencies!Tip from Chef Thomas Sixt
3.1 Blanching Peas
Put the frozen or fresh field peas in boiling salted water and cook until al dente.
Then let cool in cold water or ice water and later toss in butter or brown butter, refine and serve.
3.2 Preparing dried peas
Soaking dried peas in cold water is a common practice.
I prefer to use the dried peas for blind baking tartlets or for making flour.
If you want to use the dried peas for stews or other preparations, please cook them directly in vegetable broth.
This is similar to lentils, I don’t like it when the dried legumes get soaked with water and taste bland!
Cook legumes in vegetable broth… Don’t be afraid! Lentils and peas are always cooked and taste delicious!
