Peas in the Pod ~ #factfriday 🌿💚
I am going to be championing different #seasonal#vegetables and #fruits each month & today it’s beautiful Spring peas. Now is a great time to buy these fresh & podding peas is a great little activity to keep small hands busy! 👩🏻🍳
🔹Peas believe it, or not, are not a vegetable and are part of the legume family i.e. lentils, chickpeas, beans etc
🔹Fibre and anti-oxidant rich and high iron and calcium
🔹Also contains protein (the protein is an incomplete protein source) and should be combined with other proteins to complete the
🔹Peas are good for weaning but ensure pureed well (skins can be tough): recommended from 6 – 8 months
🔹Great for older kids too as easy finger food
🔹Frozen peas can be added to most meals for added nutrition quickly!
Quick recipe idea ~ 🌿💚Pea Risotto 💚🌿
You need ~
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 onion, peeled and chopped
150g risotto rice
500ml homemade stock (or no added salt stock), warmed in a pan
100g frozen peas
To make ~
🌿Take a pot and melt the butter and heat the olive oil on a low heat
🌿Add the onion and gently soften for around 10 minutes until translucent
🌿Add the rice and stir into the onion, olive oil and butter until every grain of rice is well coated
🌿Add a ladleful of the warm stock at a time, and keep stirring! Once the liquid is absorbed repeat, until the risotto has absorbed all the liquid (20 mins or so)
🌿When you add the last ladleful of stock add the frozen peas and they will cook for the last few mins of cooking
🌿Serve, you can of course add some grated Parmesan to finish and any chopped herbs you like
Quick tip ~ if you want a lovely bright green risotto, just blend some cooked peas with a few tablespoons of stock into a pea purée. Stir through the final risotto. It’s always good to let the risotto sit for 5 mins, with a lid on just to settle 💚
Serious Shishito-Pepper-holic foodie confession, as I can have pretty much endless😉 amount in one sitting. Pictured is the side order of Shishito Peppers (kkwari-gochu in Korean and super rich in Vitamin K and Vitamin C 🤩) my favorite oyster spot —chain of Mermaid Inn @themermaidnyc located in UWS & Oyster Bar in Greenwich Village and East Village. Their $1.25 (used to be just $1) oyster happy hour (5-7pm) is the best bet for obsessive oyster-lover like me and their a-la-carte menus are consistently delicious, and of course their blistered Shishito Peppers with candied lemon 🍋 and sea salt is one of the best in NYC! #shishitopeppers#mermaidinn
As I was enjoying following the great @katemagic on Instagram (she went to Bali last winter), I saw she was happy to be #home in the UK after a beautiful #travel experience in Indonesia.
Personally I wonder if I can call somewhere “home”. However what I know for sure is that I #feelathome very rapidly when I am somewhere new. As some people accuse me of uprooting my children by moving abroad, I contemplate how #open -mindedness is an underestimated quality. Having the skill to #adjustandadapt is worth it. Choosing self-sacrifice to make sure our #kids are raised in the same place during their entire childhood does not feel right. Belonging and feeling secure relate to knowing we are loved and safe. Whenever we go, I create the best loving environment I can for my #children
What is your experience? Did you move abroad when you were a child?

My family are not much of experimenters when it comes to food. But when we met a smiley man named Оlawale at @baltijaamaturg, we couldn’t resist the temptation of trying some of the unfamiliar and appealing goods he was offering.
We ended up buying Cassava and the green banana suitable for cooking. Cassava was not easy to peel, but the challenge brought the whole family together, and after some fussing we finally found a way. The cutting went smoother. I fried it in tiny chopped pieces, served with sour cream, and the ready-to-eat dish looked just like hash browns, yet tasted a bit different. Good different.
The banana was a pleasure to handle and looked pretty after having been cut and fried with garlic. It tasted amazing even without sauce - crunchy, fragrant and...different.
Turns out where we only hoped for “different”, we discovered a lot more. Let me know if you too have tried these.
Consuming #seasonal fruits and vegetables are more likely to be fresher and higher in nutritional value. Seasonal fruit and vegetables will also appear brighter and more vibrant. Some anti-oxidants such as vitamin C, folate and carotenes will rapidly decline when stored for periods of time, which usually happens with fruits and vegetables that are not in season.
What is your favourite #fruit and #vegetable ?
