Marni Katz
My kids love peas. I know, I know, you think I say this a lot.  You are right, they do like a variety of fruits and veggies, but they definitely have their aversions too.

  • 1 bag frozen peas
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt or salt of your choosing


  • In a medium saute pan over medium heat add olive oil and frozen peas to the pan
  • Cook until heated through
  • Once cooked (5-7 minutes), add salt
  • Turn off heat and let cool about 5 minutes
  • Transfer to high speed blender (I love my Vitamix and here's why) and add the ¼ cup of water to blender container.
  • Blend to desired texture (I like to blend this puree till quite smooth).


This method for cooking the peas comes from Favorite Family Recipes.  You can also simply steam the peas before pureeing.
