honey-lime peas


The giveaway for Gooseberry Patch's latest cookbook, Good-for-You Everyday Meals, has ended and the winner is announced here.  Congratulations!


But even though the giveaway is over, I still had to share a few more of my favorite recipes.  These peas may look pretty average, but they are oh-so-good.



The honey-lime coating on these peas makes them a delicious hot side dish (we loved them alongside grilled fajita chicken) or a perfect cold topping for your favorite salad.  And they are soooo easy to make - takes just minutes!



Honey-Lime Peas
from Gooseberry Patch's Good-for-You Everyday Meals
2 12-oz. pkgs. frozen peas
2 T. rice vinegar
2 T. honey
2 T. fresh chives, snipped
juice of 1 lime
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
2 t. sea salt
1/2 t. pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Cook peas according to practice directions; drain and transfer to a serving bowl.  Meanwhile, combine remaining ingredients except olive oil in a food processor or blender.  Pulse to combine; slowly stream in olive oil and blend well.  Drizzle mixture over cooked peas and toss to coat.  May be served warm or chilled.  Makes 8 servings.
