Today I show you my simple Peas recipe. Pea vegetables are best cooked from fresh peas or frozen peas.
I bought the pea pods fresh from the market and have prepared a step-by-step guide for you below.
The great side dish fits to the most different courts and preparations, you find an idea for pea soup at the end of the page. I wish you all the best!
1. How 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!
1.1 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.
1.2 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!
