A Pea Recipe For A Picky Kid — Inspired By The Monster Who Ate My Peas

The Monster Who Ate My Peas

The Monster Who Ate My Peas

By Jacob Arnold

Monsters drive a hard bargain.

They will eat your unwanted peas, but only if you give them something valuable of yours in exchange. Maybe it’s your favorite soccer ball or that fancy bike that you love to ride up and down the street. Or something much more valuable.

 

Just because you didn’t want to eat your peas.

 

All is not lost, however. The best way to keep those vegetable-eating/bike-grabbing monsters at bay is to actually do the unthinkable – enjoy your vegetables.

With this easy recipe that both kids and adults will love, that may not be too difficult!

This Monster will eat your peas for you...for a price!

Cheesy Pea And Bacon Fritters

Recipe courtesy of http://www.peas.org/.

 

Ingredients
1 large potato, cooked and mashed
1/2 cup plain flour
1 egg
1/2 cup double cream
1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
7 strips of bacon, diced into small pieces
8 oz frozen peas
2 oz grated mature cheddar
2 tbsp butter, plus a little extra for frying
Sea salt and black pepper
Method
After mashing the potato, leave it to cool. When it is cool, add plain flour, egg and double cream. Mix well. Put to one side while you melt the butter and fry the onion and bacon until light brown. Cool, and add to the potato mixture. Season to taste. Add the cheese and peas. Melt a little butter in a non-stick frying pan. When the butter is frothing, add dessertspoons of the mixture to the pan and fry on each side until golden Delicious with sausages or bacon!

 

Makes approximately 6-8 fritters

 

Tips
The less water you use when cooking peas, the less vitamin C is lost. Steaming helps to conserve this vitamin.
When boiling frozen peas, add enough water to cover, bring to the boil and then cover and simmer for 3 minutes. To microwave 8oz of frozen peas add 1 tablespoon of water, place in a non metallic container and cover. Cook on full power for 4 minutes (750W) or 4 1/2 minutes (650W)
