What quick tricks do you have up your sleeve to get an extra portion of veg into your family’s meals? A handful of frozen peas has long been a favourite of mine, just lobbed in to a pan of bolognese, stir-fry, risotto or pasta, it seems to perk up most dishes.
My boys will eat frozen peas straight from the bag to be honest, something I found disconcerting when they first did it, but as snacks go it’s got to be better than a biscuit!
You can see me stirring Birds Eye frozen peas into a pan of bolognese in my latest advert… sounds simple doesn’t it, but as I stood in a studio stirring a pan of mince for camera someone shouted “Can you stir more convincingly please?!”. Oh dear. I bet Nigella doesn’t get those sort of comments 😉
Are frozen peas one of your staples? What do you stir yours into? I’d love to hear your ideas!
