Having a few frozen bags of peas in your freezer at the ready will come in extremely handy. I can’t tell you how many times they’ve helped me pull dinner out of a hat. They cook up in a flash, are extremely economical and go with just about everything. Not to mention they can do double duty when you need an ice pack (and if you have little ones, you’re going to need ice packs at some point). If you’re looking to add more green into your meal planning (or last-minute meal planning) we have put together 7 tasty ways to cook with a bag of frozen peas, including those scrumptious mac ‘n’ greens pictured above. You can find that recipe and the others after the jump.
