Went on holiday and the neighbour who was supposed to pick my peas didn't....It happens, I hear you say. But now I have a lot of very full pods with peas inside which are nearly square for having been so squashed and I can't possibly cook them in stir fry or with a risotto as I would normally. Any ideas/recipes? Any suggestion most appreciated. Thank you!

Hi Ravarel! Welcome! How about green pea soup? Soup is great for vegetables that are still good but going past their prime.

This is Green Pea Soup With White Cheddar Scallion Panini.

I got this recipe from Everyday Foods Magazine. It is tasty. I can not post the recipe because of copyright but it is available for free at Martha Stewart's website.

Many blessings to you for Happiness and May your troubles be few!

Welcome! AND ! I agree
Of course. After you shell them. They will still be good in stir-fry.
Soups, stews, or just boiled.

I know 😬 the lousy part is shelling them. HUH !
I hate that part. 😬

I put overgrown peas in a stir fry and cooking them seemed to activate the flavor (which deteriorates when you let peas overgrow). We like to eat our peas raw right out of the garden, but raw peas are starchy and flavorless if you let them overgrow so only cooking salvages them.

@ravarel

I am glad that the soup worked for you. Stir-Fry sounds yummy, too! Just wanted to invite you to the Garden Photos Forum, if you get a chance. Lots of nice threads. Please visit me on my thread, My Caffeinated Garden and other tidbits in 2017. Nice to meet you!

May your week be happy and peaceful!
