Wishing you a Hap-pea New Year!

If you are looking for healthy recipe options for 2015, you can’t go far wrong with peas.

Just one serving of freshly frozen garden peas and petit pois contains as much vitamin C as two large apples!

Peas are a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, folate, thiamine (B1), iron and phosphorus. They are rich in protein, carbohydrate and fibre and low in fat.

Half a cup of frozen peas has only 5% of the daily value for sodium and foods low in sodium are good for your heart.

Try our healthy option under 500kcal soups, Asparagus and Pea Spring Minestrone Soup and Clear Pea and Vegetable Soup with Brown Rice.
