Fresh Produce Tuesday- Week #4: Peas

Welcome to our 4th week of the Fresh Produce Tuesday- today we are featuring peas.  I was hoping to find shelling peas at the grocery store, but I was only able to find snap peas and snow peas today.  The local farmers markets in this area don’t start for a few more weeks so unfortunately, I was out of luck in my search to find just plain peas.  That’s alright though- we can showcase many varieties of peas this week!  Here are 10 recipes featuring peas:

Also, just wanted to remind you of our Fresh Produce Tuesday schedule for the spring:

Week #1- March 27th: Asparagus
Week #2- April 3rd: Artichokes
Week #3- April 10th: Spring Onions
Week #4- April 17th: Peas
Week #5- April 24th: Garlic Scapes
Week #6- May 1st: Rhubarb
Week #7- May 8th: Fava Beans
Week  #8- May 15th: Radishes

Please link up your favorite pea recipe below!  I would love it if you could provide a link back to 2 Sisters 2 Cities or add our button to your pea-related post, but it is not required.

      Hi Sara- That sounds great! I made a pea soup a few weeks ago and my husband loved it. I’ve been on the look-out for different variations. Hope you are doing well!

    These recipes look great and I love peas! I saw spring garlic in the store this week, but don’t know how to cook them/what to do with them. Any suggestions?

      Hi Tracy- I think spring garlic is similar to spring onions…you can sub them for regular garlic with a somewhat milder taste. Next week is garlic scape week (which are the curling stalks of spring garlic)…maybe I should add spring garlic to the mix as well!

        I have never known what to do with garlic scapes either so that would be oh so fun!
