|Frozen peas add flavor, nutrition and color to many dishes.|
Even when you seemingly have nothing to cook with, frozen peas can easily come to the rescue and add flavor, nutrition and color to a variety of dishes. The best part? In certain situations, the frozen peas don't need to be thawed.
Last night's tomato sauce of strained tomatoes, onion, garlic, a chopped sausage and some parsley needed something else, so I threw in a heaping handful of frozen peas at the end of the cooking process. The residual heat was enough to thaw and warm the peas.
More ideas: Combine thawed frozen peas with any cooked grain or pasta for a quick grain or pasta salad. Add frozen peas to scrambled eggs. Add frozen peas to a chicken soup. Add frozen peas to your smoothie.
