Soooo, how do you like your peas? How do you make them? Do you have a love-hate relationship with them? I personally love them. I use peas in many recipes of soups, salads or as a side dish. I have more access to the frozen ones here, where I live, but sometimes, late summer, I find them at the Farmers Market and buy them. So sweet and so delicious!
The recipe today is an “easy-peasy” one! Perfect for a quick dinner and served with some Fried Chicken my way or Chicken Schnitzels, peas are a delicious choice even for the kids. You can also serve them to a fancy dinner with this Roasted Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin. And also, you should try them with the traditional Romanian Chiftele, just like my grandmother used to serve them to us.
