What to Do With: Fresh Peas

38SHARES
BACK TO TOP

Fresh peas are at their peak from May to November. If you're lucky enough to find them in your local farmers market (or even luckier - your back garden), seize the opportunity! Sweet, juicy and packed with flavour, here are a few ideas for what to do with fresh peas: 

  • Pesto: Blitz shelled peas in a food processor with pine nuts, garlic, olive oil and parmesan. Delicious! Try your fresh pea pesto with linguine, on bruschetta or in a sandwich.
  • Soup: If you really do have a glut of fresh peas, there's no better place to show them off than in a fresh, homemade soup. Pea and mint soup and the famous pea and ham soup are among our favourites.  
  • Pancakes: You read that correctly. Pea pancakes can make for a surprising breakfast treat. Cook the peas for a couple of minutes in boiling water, then drain, whizz up with the eggs and other ingredients and fry as usual. Top with chorizo and feta cheese for a savoury twist.
  • Salad: For a light summer salad packed full of healthy ingredients, try adding some fresh peas to crispy prosciutto, avocado, couscous, cucumber and a sprig of mint.
  • Pizza: It might sound mad, but peas on a pizza actually works. Try it and see for yourself! 
  • Risotto: Make a pea stock by whizzing up fresh peas and vegetable stock to add to your risotto mix. Top with pea shoots and some garlic oil for the perfect light meal.
