Simply Delicious: Peas with Lemon and Ginger

Recipe adapted from Eat Greens

At last, the spring veggies have sprung! Local Farmers’ Markets are starting to pop up, and the weather is dry and balmy. Springtime veggies like chard, kale, spinach, cauliflower, broccolini, and tiny new carrots are on the menu, as well as winter relics like beets, oranges, and lemons. Plus the quintessential springtime veg: peas. Snap peas, also known as Chinese pea pods, are young peas that are small and tender enough to eat pod and all. Get ‘em now, because as the peas mature, the pods toughen and can’t be eaten.
