This recipe is so simply and so yummy! I make it to go with traditional family dinners and my kids and dh love it. My kids pick out the onions and mushrooms (hey you can't win them all, right?), but like the flavor of the sweet peas. This is originally from a Taste of Home yearbook.
I was asked to post this relic from my college days when the only cooking items we were allowed to have in our dorm rooms was a hotpot and a popcorn popper. Its about as non-gourmet as non-gourmet gets, but its cheap, easy, filling, and suprizingly tasty. Its tastier than it sounds and it still shows up on my table from time to time, much to my kids' delight.
Got this recipe with my veggies in my CSA. We ate all the peas right out of the bag, so have to get some more to try this! LOL! From Farmer John’s Cookbook: The Real Dirt On Vegetables: Seasonal Recipes and Stories from a Community Farm
These are quick samosas using a frozen, commercial puff pastry instead of the traditional samosa dough. You can used cubed boiled potatoes in place of the peas, too, or combine the two vegetables if you like.
This is my very own, 100% original recipe for an authentic Indian "pulao". The word "pilaf" is distortion of the word "pulao" which simply means a rice dish cooked with veggies and spices. This tastes great with a spicy raita, or with plain yogurt. Using margarine makes this a vegan.
When the temperature soars in the summer I can't face hot meals and serve nothing but assortments of salads, cheese and cold cuts for days on end. I value "main course" salads that will keep in the fridge from one meal to the next, and this one fits the bill. Fresh peas are quite amazing, but expensive and time consuming to shell. Frozen ones are not the same, but perfectly fine. If you use frozen peas, prep time will be much quicker. I have a big crop of snow peas this year; I think I will try them in this salad.
