Peas are extremely low fat food, good source of protein, vitamin K, B1, B2, B6, niacin, dietary fibre, zinc, manganese un, iron, potassium and choline. All this in tiny, sweet seeds.
In spring we can enjoy fresh peas, I like getting them and peeling them myself so that they don’t lose their vitamins and taste.
Ingredients: (eat 4)
1kg of fresh peas in their pods or 1/2kg of peeled/frozen peas.
2 big, fresh onions.
1/2kg of brown rice or basmati mixed rice.
a glass of white wine
a glass of soya or any other vagetable milk.
a teaspoon of curcuma.
water or vegetable soup.
Peel the onions and chop them in thin slices, place them in a big casserole with some olive oil and let it cook until it reaches a golden colour.
Once the onion is done, add the peas, the glass of wine and cover with water or vegetable soup. Let cook for 10 minutes then add the rice, salt to taste and cover with water or the rest of vegetable soup.
Stir every 5 minutes. Add the curcuma before the water has gone and the glass of soya milk. In case the rice isn’t done when all the water has gone add some more water.
Add some vegetable grated cheese on top, Parmesan style.
