Okay, so you know how your mother always told you when you were a child to eat your peas? Well, I was the little girl who didn’t. For the longest time I despised peas, I just felt as though they were a useless little green vegetable. However, today I am a changed woman who has decided to give those tasty little green suckers a chance. When I moved to Austin, I became an avid fan of Whole Foods, where each week they have a new hot bar cuisine, full of in-house dishes that they prepare. Anyways…I look forward to their Indian cuisine because they have the most delicious pea side dish that I have ever tasted. I am usually not a fan of Indian food, however these peas take the cake. Just my luck, I was browsing wholefoods.com and what do you know? They have the recipe!!! The peas traditionally call for tofu in the dish as well, but this time around I decided to omit the tofu…and save it for later. If you don’t like peas now, believe me this dish will make you worship peas, crediting them for all their worth! MANGIA!
