Spring Recipes – Peas

Pea and Broadbean Pasta

Peas, broadbeans and mint are natural spring partners. They are all easy to grow and they all around at the same time in my garden.

Here’s one of my favourite recipes by Nigel Slater, and this one by Jamie Oliver is good too. I mix the two, so I add cooked peas and lemon zest (ie. hopefully homegrown in the future, minus the wax that commercial varieties come with).
