You see, since frozen peas defrost and warm up almost instantly when cooked, they’re a rockstar ingredient for fast main dishes.
- Toss them into pasta.
Add some green goodness to your pasta dinner without even trying. The peas will warm up immediately when tossed with hot noodles and make both dinner party and kid-friendly pasta a bit more wholesome.
- Make a creamy dip.
Dip alone isn’t a meal, but a creamy dip made from defrosted, blended peas can be more than just a snack. Swipe it thick on toast and top said toast with a poached or fried egg for an easy meal that feels a little luxurious.
- Blend them into the soup.
If you’ve got a bag of frozen peas, an aromatic like a leek or an onion, and chicken or vegetable broth on your hands, you have what you need for a light yet satisfying puréed soup.
