I am a sucker for peas. When there are fresh English peas around in the Springtime, I could spend my whole paycheck on them. My favorite way to serve them is English style- minted mushy peas. If you don’t like peas, there’s something wrong with you! Or you’ve never had them properly prepared. Greeeen is goooood for you!
This is my go-to recipe, but I make a few tweaks: Simple Peas and Onions
My tweaks: I use vegan butter and vegan stock. I cut the amount of stock in half (to 1/4 cup), add some fresh mint (about 2 sprigs worth of leaves) and then blend the whole thing with an immersion blender once the peas turn bright green.
Addictive Green Beans
It’s finally Spring, which means I’m getting more variety in my CSA box. After weeks of making a lot of the same old recipes, now I can get experimental with what comes in the box. This week’s box had 2 lbs of green beans, so I had to put them to good use. This recipe lives up to its name and these are truly addictive. Crunchy, spicy, sweet, salty!
Szechuan Green Beans
My Tweaks: Pretty much followed the recipe except substituted Gluten Free Tamari for the soy sauce and I made it spicier by adding extra Sriracha plus crushed red pepper and togarashi. **memo to self- this sauce would be great for filling for lettuce wraps!
