The food pyramid recommends 2 to 3 servings of protein per day and adding this inexpensive wonder-food is a good low-fat option to meet those requirements. Green peas are so versatile- you can have them as a soup, sprinkle them on a salad, stir them into a vegetable stew or serve along with rice as a pilav. You can combine peas with other nutritional powerhouses like red cabbage, french beans or carrots as a simple vegetable saute.
Frozen green peas are just as good as the fresh ones- just be sure to rinse them well before using since sodium is used as part of the freezing process. That way,you don't end up consuming unnecessary sodium.
