  1. Wow what a great idea! I've never thought to roast peas, I bet they taste delicious. I especially like addition of lemon. Must try this, thank you.

  2. Hi Grace! You're welcome! The roasting brings out the sweetness in the peas and the lemon adds some freshness. It's one of those super easy preparations that tastes astronomically better than one would except given its' simplicity. Hope you enjoy!

  3. The peas look delicious!

  4. Thanks Kathy! P.S. Your vegan chicken n dumplings looks AMAZING (I'll have to try!)! I made biscuits with (veggie) sausage gravy the other day (will be posting next week!)…
