This recipe was inspired by an hors d'oeuvre recipe I tried a few weeks back, where the filling for lettuce wraps was a crushed pea and cheese mixture. I love the filling wrapped in lettuce, but I liked it more served tossed with pasta. I've added my own variations to it, and I like to toss in some seasonal vegetables or shredded chicken to round out the dish.Click here to see Eat Your Legumes — They're Good for You.

Believe it or not, this was the first time I've ever seared scallops. Yes, it's true. I have a few tips that I picked up on while perfecting these guys that you should know if you're a first-timer, too. One, butter is key. Two, always make sure your scallops are very dry before you sear them. Three, don't overcrowd the pan, because the juices from the scallops will prevent you from properly searing them. The pea purée is a great complement, but keep in mind that you can substitute other vegetables into that as well, such as carrots, butternut squash, or corn.Click here to see 5 Sublime Scallop Recipes.

Cut the Carbs by Tori Haschka (Quadrille)

Serves 2
1 tbsp olive oil
1 sweet red apple, peeled, cored and diced
200g tenderstem broccoli, diced, including stems, or ½ head of broccoli
1 courgette, diced
220g frozen peas
3 handfuls of kale, finely chopped
500ml hot vegetable or chicken stock
2 tbsp fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves

For the crumble (optional)
50g chorizo, crumbled into small pieces
1–2 tbsp olive oil, if needed
1 tsp smoked paprika, if needed
2 tbsp flaked almonds

1 Heat the olive oil in a heavy-based saucepan or casserole dish over medium heat. Add the apple and saute for 2 minutes. Add the broccoli and saute for 2–4 minutes until it begins to soften.

2 Add the courgette, peas and kale, then saute for about 4 minutes, stirring so the peas defrost and the kale wilts. Pour the hot stock into the pan and bring it to a simmer. Cover the pan with the lid and simmer until the apple and broccoli are soft.

3 Using a stick blender, food processor or blender, blitz the contents of the pan until smooth. If you are using a food processor or blender, be careful – don't fill it all the way to the top and be sure to place a tea towel over the top of the blender while you blitz, as hot liquids can expand and spill out. Taste and season with salt, if needed.

4 To make the crumble, fry the chorizo in a frying pan over medium heat until it is cooked through and has leached crimson oil into the pan. If there is none, then add the olive oil and smoked paprika. Add the flaked almonds and cook until the almonds have been toasted in the oil. Serve the soup with the chorizo crumble and parsley scattered over the top.

Recipes Using English Peas

English peas are also known as green, shell or garden peas. Their peak months are during the spring and late summer/early fall when fresh English peas are sold in their pods--you will need to shell them before cooking as the pods are very fibrous and not edible. It is best to use the peas right after you bring them home to truly enjoy their flavor, but you can store in the refrigerator for a few days if necessary. You can also buy the peas frozen or canned, in this case, they will be shelled.

This green pea salad is as pretty as it is flavorful, with bright green peas, shredded carrot, bell pepper, red onion, and celery. Serve this salad with any summer meal or cookout, or take it along to a potluck event or picnic. Make this a few hours in advance and chill thoroughly for best flavor.

This casserole includes petite peas, chopped hard-cooked eggs, cheese, and pimentos. Surprise your family with this unexpected twist on the oven-baked casserole.

Very good, Made this to accompany the jerk chicken recipe from this site. Used only 1/4 of a Scotch bonnet pepper - which was hot enough for the guests who don't like hot chilis and used 16 ounces coconut milk plus a little extra water to keep the rice from drying out and burning. I probably needed more liquid as I made the bean part ahead of time and then added the rice before 30 min. before dinner. Spices are very good.

Delicious! I made with brown rice and it took longer, and I had to add probably 1 1/2 cups or more of veg broth to last. But I loved it. Using dried beans is a key, delicious! Vegan family loved as main meal.

This is the best rice and peas recipe I have ever used. I even made it with brown rice and it still came out perfect. So delicious.
Thanks for sharing it.

Those of you that wanted the old recipe here it is but Im Jamaican and this is not how to make real rice and peas.

1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 1 tablespoon finely chopped ginger 1 cup white rice Kosher salt 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk 1 1/2 cup water 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained


In a medium pot, heat the oil over medium heat until hot. Stir in the garlic and ginger and cook stirring occasionally until translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in the rice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, coconut milk, water and kidney beans then bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover the pot. Cook until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, about 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork and let stand off the heat, covered, 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and serve.

I was just wondering why can't you use can red beans instead of soaking overnight. and rice has nice red colour.

My Jamaican friend's dad uses the can before and it still came out delicious. Less time consuming also. Perhaps there's another reason?

This is not the original recipe. I had this link saved because I used this recipe numerous times. Thank god I screenshot the ingredients because this recipe is terrible. I guess I’ll have to wing the instructions on how to do it because these instructions don’t fit the old ingredients. There aren’t even allspice berries in it and uses canned beans as opposed to dry beans. What happened to the original recipe?

where is the recipe that replaced this one?

A note to readers: Growing up in a Jamaican family, food was always a focal point. The earlier version of Jamaican Rice and Peas posted here was an inaccurate representation of a dish that is true to my culture and the many people that enjoy it. Culturally relevant recipes should be developed with thoughtful consideration of their origin. Here, I’m proud to share my mom’s recipe for Jamaican rice and peas. Jamaican rice and peas—seasoned with the special trinity of thyme, scallion, and garlic—is a staple dish of the island. Like clockwork, my mom cooked Jamaican rice and peas with a baked chicken every Sunday. Its woodsy flavor is heightened by the addition of whole pimento seeds (aka allspice berries) and its subtle heat comes from the Scotch bonnet pepper. We always had Scotch bonnet peppers in the refrigerator and my mom would cut slivers from them to add to almost everything. When used whole, the pepper lends a slightly fruity flavor without the intense heat because the seeds and flesh are not exposed. The very hot Scotch bonnet pepper can be found in farmers’ markets or Caribbean grocery stores, but a habanero pepper is a good substitute. I like to use dried dark red kidney beans. They are often featured in this dish, but you can also use green pigeon peas (aka gungo peas), which are also commonly used. The coconut milk is infused with the reddish tint of the beans, which gives the rice its signature blush.

3. Greek Peas (Arakas Kokinistos)

These Greek Peas by Kiki Vagianos are a whole new way to eat this familiar veggie. Green peas swim in a sauce of tomato, onions, dill, and of course, Greek oregano. You’ll want to have lots of crusty bread to help sop all the extra sauce in this simple but tasty dish.

Pea Salad

This fun, simple salad is great for any spring or summer gathering.

A favorite from childhood! Pea salad with big chunks of cheese and bits of bacon. Tasty!

frozen green peas, almost totally thawed

slices bacon, cooked until crisp and chopped

small red onion, halved and sliced very thin

cheddar or American cheese, cut into small cubes

  1. Mix the sour cream, mayonnaise, salt, pepper, and vinegar together to make the dressing. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Stir 2/3 of the dressing into the peas until the peas are coated. Gently stir in the bacon, onion, cheese, and parsley until all combined. Taste and adjust seasonings. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 to 4 hours before serving. (Pop the extra dressing in the fridge, too.)
  3. Remove from the fridge and stir in the rest of the dressing to your liking. Sprinkle with more parsley before serving.

First things first: It&rsquos Easter week, so here is my entire Easter Recipe Archive if you&rsquod like to start planning your weekend cooking.

Growing up, my family would go to Sunday brunch a few times a year, and I still remember going through the buffet line and loading up on&hellipwell, everything. From ham to eggs benedict to waffles to mashed potatoes to fruit salad to desserts, all those Sunday brunch delights will forever be etched in my comfort food memory. A couple of years ago, when my sister and I went to our hometown and had Sunday brunch with our dad, you&rsquod better believe all those same brunchie wonders were still there&hellipand you&rsquod better believe I loaded up just like I did as a child. It was all about the nostalgia, after all!

Oh, and I was really, really hungry.

Despite all the other dishes competing for attention at Sunday brunch, the one I most remember was a delicious pea salad with big chunks of cheese, slivers of red onion, and a light, creamy dressing. I don&rsquot even want to think about how many metric tons of the stuff I must have consumed through the years, but I loved it&hellipand still love it every bit as much today. It&rsquos a fun, simple salad that&rsquos great for any spring or summer gathering, but is particularly nice for Easter since it&rsquos bursting with lovely green peas.

Here&rsquos how I make it! Nothing complicated about it.

Start with peas! Frozen peas are great, and here&rsquos what I do: I let them thaw for just a bit at room temperature, but I don&rsquot let them go all the way. You want them to stay nice and cold and firm so they don&rsquot freak out and get mushy when you mix the salad together.

While the peas are thawing a bit, fry some bacon. I would highly recommend waiting until your husband leaves the house to meet with his father-in-law about an issue with a fence before you do this. Otherwise, the bacon won&rsquot wind up in the pea salad. It will wind up in his mouth.

For supah flavah, slice a red onion (otherwise known as a purple onion) in half and remove the weird core if it&rsquos large like this.

Then slice the onion as thin as you can.

This is way more than I need for the salad, but if I&rsquom going to slice a red onion (otherwise known as a purple onion), I&rsquom going to slice a red onion (otherwise known as a purple onion.) Can I get an amen?

I have no idea what I just said.

One of the defining ingredients in the pea salad I&rsquove always loved are nice chunks of cheese throughout the whole darn thing. Now, I can&rsquot speak with authority on this since I never watched the Sunday brunch chef make the pea salad, but I&rsquom 80% sure the cheese used in that pea salad was American cheese. It just had that unapologetic American cheese quality about it. I should make an anonymous phone call over there someday and pretend I&rsquom taking a survey of country clubs across the nation and ask them what kind of cheese they use in their pea salads.

(And while I&rsquom at it, I&rsquoll ask them if their refrigerator is running&hellip)

(Man, I love prank calling. It&rsquos a shame it&rsquos a fading art form.)

Because frozen peas are picked at the peak of their season and immediately frozen to preserve their flavor, they're often sweeter and more tender than fresh peas. They're also usually less expensive (and you don't need to shell them). Frozen peas are delicious in soups, pastas, potpies, and side dishes.

Some easy ideas: Cover peas with chicken or vegetable broth by 1/2 inch and simmer 5 minutes. Puree in a blender until smooth and thin as needed. Serve soup topped with a dollop of yogurt. For a side, saute thawed peas with butter. Toss thawed peas with hot cooked pasta, cream cheese, and cubed ham. Or saute cubed cooked potatoes until lightly golden, then add peas and a dash of curry powder and heat through.

Easy Traditional British Mushy Peas

Love them or hate them, traditional mushy peas go with British food favorites like peanut butter goes with jelly. Usually served alongside pub fare such as fish and chips or hot meat pies, mushy peas occupy the space typically reserved for coleslaw on a lunch plate in American restaurants. In Ireland, they're often served alongside roast leg of lamb. Impostor mushy peas recipes use frozen and even fresh peas, but they do not come even close to the real thing. That being said, marrowfat peas are not exactly a grocery store staple in the U.S., but you can get them at specialty stores, online and, of course, British supermarkets.

For real traditional mushy peas, you must soak dried marrowfat peas overnight (at least 8 hours unless they are labeled "no soak"), then cook them low and slow. Marrowfat peas are mature standard green peas that are allowed to dry in the fields. They are different from young garden peas because they contain a high proportion of starch, giving them their signature texture. Baking soda added to the simmering peas causes them to explode and create the desired mush. Some dislike the result, but fans insist that the soft, melting texture of the peas tastes lovely when eaten with freshly cooked hot chips or a meat pie straight from the oven, preferably with a delicious drizzle of mint sauce on top.
