39 pea recipes for spring and beyond (2024)

Never underestimate the humble green pea.

Oct 31, 2023 1:00am

Come spring, bright little green peas are ready to pop from their pods. Stir fresh peas through your next spring-ready pea salad, turn them into crisp fritters or frittelle for snack times, or toss them through a tangle of pasta with these best recipes with peas. Fresh out for the rest of the year? Frozen peas will still do you good.

In our extensive collection of peas recipes, we go well beyond the classics like a ham and pea soup recipe or mushy peas recipe (although we do love these in the cooler months).

We have showstopping mains such as Danielle Alvarez's slow-cooked ocean trout with fresh peas and Fico's pea risotto with buffalo mozzarella and spring herbs. Looking for a fresh pea salad? We have plenty of those, too, from a reliable cucumber and pea salad to an excellent side dish of grilled broccolini with peas, goat's curd and mint. Plus, pastas, dips, soups and more.

Here are our best pea recipes to turn to.
