Today I decided to empty the freezer. We only have a small freezer space and the 750gm bag of Petit Pois was taking up too much space!
After putting my thinking cap on I made two lovely recipes I share with you below.
The first dish is Petit Pois Hummus and is so delicious and great with fresh crunchy crispbreads.
The recipe is simple and quick. It’s 10 syns for the whole amount on Slimming World and 17 Smartpoints on Weightwatchers. It will serve at least 6 portions
My second recipe which I used the remaining peas for is Minted Petit Pois and Potato Soup with Smoked Bacon.
The whole pan is free on Slimming World and apx 20 Weightwatchers Smartpoints but serves at least 4 and again is lovely
It’s amazing what you can make with a bag of peas!
