I have to admit that the EatSavvy ingredient this month is one of my favourite foods. So when June comes around every year and it’s fresh pea season in Ontario, I am always a bit biased when choosing the main ingredient for EatSavvy. Luckily, Denise Smith our food editor, knows about my obsession and is a fan of peas herself—or she just pretends to humor me which is just as likely the case.
Either way, we have a few yummy recipes for you to choose from on EatSavvy this month that all incorporate peas. They are lovely this time of year and my kids enjoy eating them right out of the pod, while they are still crunchy.
Keep the recipes in your favourites and make them all year long with frozen peas, too. And teach the kids to say ‘Peas, please.’
