I am one of those strange people who simply adores shelling peas. Opening a pod and seeing all of the little peas lined up like soldiers is utterly adorable.
Fresh peas are a beautiful thing. I love using them for a creamy pesto to coat strands of spaghetti. They are wonderful tossed in crunchy salads with a miso dressing. They are magical in spaghetti carbonara.
I am most excited to eat them in guacamole. I imagine you are wondering how guacamole and peas go together but I promise you they do. I had a guacamole like that at ABC Cocina when I was there for my birthday dinner it was absurdly good. I am now smitten.
Recipe is coming by the end of this week...
