Green Peas Puree, simple and delicious

Green Peas Puree

Green peas – delicious, yummy, nutritious, and extremely versatile! Serve them up with meat, fish, or just on their own. No matter how you serve them, this vegetable will always give you the energy fuel to get all your chores done.

We had one day of beautiful sunny weather, and everyone went crazy. A temperature of 50 degrees Fahrenheit is excellent but scary as well. Winter is supposed to be cold, snowy, picturesque, and miserable simultaneously.

Everyone’s spirit was beginning to elevate until nightfall brought a cold whistling wind, a reminder that winter was not over for good. In addition to the cold whistling wind, everyone knew they needed to prepare for the upcoming colder days. And what better way to feel warm – a nice bowl of Split Pea Soup or Green Peas Puree?

As there are some similarities between cultures, there are similarities with foods as well. Green Peas Puree is very similar to Split Pea Soup. The ingredients and preparation are somewhat different regarding the types of spices added for flavoring.

The only disparity between Green Pea Puree and Split Pea Soup is consumption. In Haitian culture, Green Peas Puree is served with white rice, whereas Split Pea Soup is eaten alone as a regular soup. While the taste is quite similar, this dish brings warmth and is enjoyed anytime during the year.

Making Green Peas Puree can be a lengthy process if using fresh ingredients, but the result is both nourishing and pleasing. The concept of using both dried peas and frozen peas is my way of enjoying this dish. Cooked dried peas create a soup-like liquid that is revived with a dash of sugar. While the sugar stimulates the flavor of the peas, fresh spices seal the taste and fineness.

A mixture of fresh garlic, scallions, parsley, thyme, and chives is cooked in a little bit of oil before adding the frozen peas and the peas puree. Other ingredients, such as carrots and peppers, are added by choice, but the Haitian way is simple with no other ingredients.

Whatever way Green Peas Puree or Split Pea Soup is prepared, the taste will vary depending on additional ingredients added for flavoring. This dish is typically cooked on Sundays or special occasions. Enjoy it with white rice and meat, a complete meal to satisfy the entire family.
