10 Dishes with a bag of Frozen Peas


10 Delicious Dishes with a bag of Frozen Peas

frozen peas recipes

If you’ve got a big bag of peas in the freezer, then here are 10 delicious dishes you can make in no-time at all. From quick & easy green dips, smoothies & pestos to hearty curries, soups, stews and stir fries… the list is endless. Peas are also delicious added to hummus, fritters, bubble and squeak and noodle broths. I also like to keep some frozen broad beans too and you can interchange broad beans with all these lovely pea recipes.

pea dip melissa hemsley

1. 5 minute Dip
It also works wonderfully with frozen broad beans or edamame too so use whatever you’ve got here. This is highly dippable and versatile so enjoy dipping or spreading on things. Serve with your favourite crackers or chop up some cucumber or carrots to dip into or serve as a side mash for later or if you’ve got eggs, it’s lovely with an egg on toast.

2. Speedy Curry
Using store-cupboard, every day ingredients, this Soup is delicious for a quick, one pan dish (meaning minimal washing up). Make a big batch & take the rest to work, or freeze for a day when you don’t feel like cooking. Feel free to add another other veg that needs using up- anything goes here!

3. Pea Pesto Pasta
This Cashew, Kale, Garlic & Pea Pasta Sauce is the ultimate feel-good, comforting and creamy green sauce. It’s smooth and creamy from the nuts and makes for a lovely vegan pasta sauce. But if like me, you fancy cheese on top, I grated lots of parmesan on at the end.

4. Wild Garlic & Pea Frittata
A quick one pan breakfast is one of my favourite ways to start the day and use up whatever leftovers I have in the fridge. I absolutely love cooking seasonally and this wild garlic made such a great addition to my recipes!

5. Spring Soup
This Pea, Mint & Celery soup is a big favourite of mine year round. I love adding the soft boiled eggs on top and a big drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. A dollop of yoghurt would also be delicious. Feel free to add in any other veggies that need using and if you’ve got leftovers, freeze them for a rainy day when you don’t feel like cooking.

6. Broccoli & Pea Soup
A bright green soup with a big boost of what you’ve got. This warming soup with za’atar is wonderful year round. Use frozen broccoli and peas instead of buying them fresh.

7. Breakfast Tray Bake
Asparagus is in season (late April to late June) so keep your eyes peeled for it, but feel free to use any beans & broccoli or greens you have in this Breakfast Asparagus Tray Bake. I pulled out some edamame beans & peas from my freezer, I’d have used frozen broad beans if I had some & topped this with some homegrown herbs.

8. Greens & Feta Quinoa Salad
This *Get Your Greens Quinoa Salad* is a properly satisfying salad in less than 30 mins. Make sure you use up the broccoli stalks too! If you run out of herbs, chop watercress/rocket/lettuce anything green goes! Swap quinoa for lentils or rice/ pasta/ buckwheat. This salad is lovely served warm or have the next day.

10. Sesame Lime Chopped Salad
This easy zesty sesame lime chopped salad is perfect as a side or even on it’s own. The recipe will make loads so enjoy it today then keep it in the fridge for tomorrow. Use any crunchy veg you’ve got and top with toasted nuts or seeds, serve warm or cold.
