My GD, Katy, loves cheese, but it is tiresome trying to get her to eat vegetables. She loves this one.
If your kids won’t eat their peas this way then they probably never will.
cheesy peas Serves 4
4 big handfuls of fresh or frozen peas a knob of butter a big handful of freshly grated Parmesan cheese 1 lemon ground white pepper
Boil the peas until perfect, then remove from the heat and drain in a colander, saving a small cup of the cooking water. Put the peas back in the pan with some of the reserved water and add a knob of butter. Stir around, then sprinkle in the Parmesan cheese and stir again until every single pea is lightly coated in the sweet, delicately melted cheese. You may need to add a bit more water to loosen the peas – you want them to be oozy (almost like a risotto consistency). A small squeeze of lemon juice always lifts the peas and cuts through the cheese, and a sprinkle of white pepper is nice too.
I want to encourage youngsters (male or female) to get into the kitchen and enjoy cooking. TASTE it!
