Peas & Love in February

As we reach the last of the winter months, February marks the start of the pea planting for Britain’s pea farmers! The harvest will take place in the summer, when millions of portions of peas will be frozen to feed us until next year.

With Valentine’s Day coming up, you might be looking to treat that special someone to a pea-licious dinner! Why not try something that is sure to impress, like our Pan-Fried Salmon with Pea and Citrus Crust. Or go bigger, with our Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb with Pea, Mint and Shallot Sauce. These luxury recipes are sure to bring the romance to any night in.

If you’re looking for something light, try the Clear Pea and Vegetable Soup with Brown Rice; or a quick healthy lunchtime alternative, Peas on Toast (guaranteed to impress)!

Perhaps your son or daughter loves donning an apron and whipping up some culinary creations in the kitchen? If so, why not think about getting involved in Young Pea Chef of the Year 2019! The competition is open to children and young adults up to the age of 16 – so keep an eye out for any updates. Whether it’s a starter, a main or a dessert, the Great British Pea must be the main aspect of the dish. The winner of each of the three categories will receive an exciting prize package from our sponsors!

Why not share your pea-inspired creations, or simply say hello on Twitter? Find us @YesPeas!

I have been preparing a number of canapes recently and by far the most popular one has been the Pea Blinis with Parma Ham and Mint, closely followed by the Mini Sausage Toadies...
