Great British Pea Week

Great British Pea Week

Did you know there is a whole week dedicated to peas?

Great British Pea Week

Can you imagine sausage and mash without peas or a spring evening without pea and mint soup, or a goat’s cheese salad without a scattering of freshly podded peas? Peas are the champions of the vegetable world!

Pea shoots are relative new-comers to our salad bowls. Pea shoots have delectable leaves and tendrils and, unsurprisingly, taste like peas. These lovely little shoots make a delicious salad and work equally served with freshly steamed or pan-fried fish.

And they are very easy to grow.

So easy that my eight-year-old grew (and ate) on her windowsill, a miniature garden full in just a couple of weeks.

They grow very well on the kitchen sill next to your other herbs; simply purchase a packet of pea shoot seeds, soak in water, add to a tray of compost and just watch them grow!

Try this mouthwatering salad from the Dairy Diary.
