Peas are one of the vegetables that are very high in protein. Snow peas are best eaten raw to fully enjoy their sweetness and health benefits. Cut them in half and add to salads, pasta or stew, but we like them just to munch on for a snack. We keep a big bowl of them in the frig to grab whenever we like.
Peas are one of the earliest green vegetables available. Once the weather gets hot, they are done for the season, so stock up in the spring. Peas freeze fairly well.
