June is here - and so is the harvest!

The great British Summer is upon us, and here at Yes Peas! HQ our pea farmers are kicking off their harvest this month with six weeks of intense work! The harvest, which takes place along the East Coast of the country, will result in enough peas to feed the entire country for a whole year – that’s an un-pea-lievable amount of peas! Most of these peas go from field to frozen in just 150 minutes, locking in all those nutrients.

The Young Pea Chef of the Year competition closes soon, don’t miss out on your chance to vote! Head over to our Facebook page now to have your say on which of the tasty pea-packed dishes you think should win the title of Young Pea Chef of the Year. You have until the 25th June to cast your vote, so time is ticking!

If you’re planning on creating your own masterpieces this summer, why not check out our Summer Recipes section? We have lots of delicious recipes to chose from including mouthwatering lunch ideas like Pea Minestrone with Sun Dried Tomato, Polenta and Basil Muffins and lighter options like our Pea, Tuna and White Bean Salad with Lemon Dressing all for under 500 calories! There is something for everyone.
