According to the folks at Yes Peas! (www.peas.org), a single serving of their favorite green vegetable has as much vitamin C as two large apples, more fiber than a slice of whole meal bread and more thiamine than a pint of whole milk. In addition to being nutrient-rich, peas are (same source) ‘‘just about the most versatile vegetable in the world. They taste great in risotto, kedgeree, omelettes, pizzas, pastas, soups, salads, casseroles and curries.’’ So ‘‘peas’’ send us your favorite recipes using peas for the Recipe Box of May 17.
