Pea season begins!

2017 is now in full swing and here at Yes Peas! we’re excited to have arrived at planting season. February and March is prime time to start sowing, so this month pea growers up and down the country will be setting out into their fields to plant the seeds which will become this year’s harvest.

As February is upon us, we are edging ever closer to the crescendo of this year’s Young Pea Chef of the Year 2017 competition. Back for a second year, the competition is officially open for entries, sponsored by British supermarket Waitrose and leading cookware supplier ProCook. Head over to the Young Pea Chef website to find out how you can enter!

If, like us, you can’t wait for spring, why not try some of our pea-tastic spring recipes to beat those winter blues. Our Grilled Halloumi with Peas, Pine Nuts, Broad Beans and Rocket will be sure to brighten your mood and put a spring in you step, or perhaps you’d like to see in the first month of the Chinese New Year by rustling up a Chinese Style Chicken and Pea Omelette.

Last year brought us some mouth-watering reci-peas, but this year we think we can do better! If you are brimming with inspiration and want to share your delicious pea recipes, you’ll find us on Twitter @YesPeas or on Facebook – so go on, show us what you’re made of!
