Tasty Recipes With Spring Peas | FreeCoupons.comPeas are one of my very favorite vegetables! It just so happens that spring peas are in season, and on sale, in April. I’ve always liked how versatile peas are. You can toss them in a fresh salad, add them to chicken pot pie or just add some butter and serve them as a side dish. Here are a some tasty recipes that include spring peas.

Sweet Pea and Tuna Salad
Real Simple has an easy to make recipe for a sweet pea and tuna salad. You will need 1 ½ cups of frozen peas that have been thawed. It shouldn’t be too difficult to substitute fresh peas for the frozen ones. You will also need 4 cups of short pasta, 2 cans of tuna (6 ounce size), celery, onion, olive oil, and seasoning. It can be made with gluten free pasta instead of the regular kind.

Sugar Snap Peas with Oregano
Sometimes, the recipes you find on the Martha Stewart website can be complex and somewhat intimidating. Not this one! Martha Stewart has a simple recipe for sugar snap peas with oregano that is exactly that. You will need 1 pound of sugar snap peas (strings removed), some salt, butter, and fresh oregano. This would make a lovely side dish at dinner.

Spring Pea Soup
Food Network has a comfort food recipe for spring pea soup. It is a vibrant green color! You will need 4 ½ cups of shelled peas (or about 4 ½ pound of unshelled peas). The recipe also requires diced celery, chicken stock, heavy cream, some herbs and seasonings. It also requires 1 ½ cups of sliced leek (just the white and green parts). Leeks are also in season in April.

Michelle Obama’s Spring Pea Salad
PopSugar posted a blog that has a modified recipe of Michelle Obama’s. It is for a spring pea salad. The recipe came from the American Grown book. It requires 2 ½ cups of shelled fresh green peas, 1 small leek (just the white parts), a shallot, mint leaves, seasoning, and more. Try this healthy, and fresh tasting, side dish for dinner.

Rice and Peas
I am allergic to gluten, so I find myself eating a dish of rice and peas very often. I add different things to it, to keep interesting. Saveur has a nice recipe for the simple dish of rice and peas. The recipe serves 4 – 6 people, and will require 3 pounds of fresh peas (shelled to yield 3 cups). For me, this is a comfort food.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
