Microwaved peas

I’ve noticed over the past couple of years that most packets of frozen peas have started saying “For best results, microwave” or something similar. However, I reckon most people still aren’t microwaving their peas, so…

If you’re having frozen peas as a side vegetable with a meal, how would you usually choose to cook them?

  • Boil in a pan of water
  • Microwave in a microwave
  • Steam them peas
  • Fry/saute type thing
  • Other

The only vegetable I’d microwave now is sweetcorn, after 16 years of thinking I don’t like vegetables due to only being fed awful microwaved ones.

Wouldn’t have frozen peas. PodLife.

Microwave in Pyrex bowl or jug for about 3 minutes, saves hob space and easier too wash up a bowl than saucepan. Tastes the same

Even the Captain’s on board with the microwave though

Preparation

To retain more vitamins, MICROWAVE STRAIGHT FROM THE FREEZER

Can I just shock you? I don’t own a microwave.

Well then you are not getting the best results from your frozen peas are you

Here bc, d’you reckon you’d know the difference between micro’d peas and pan’d peas in a blind taste test?

Actually the most frequent use of frozen peas in my household is as a direct edition to a Meera Sodha curry. If that answers your question at all.

He outranks you pal, this is insubordination.

I’ll walk the plank before I bow to that despot again.

Very bold.

Well kind of, at least you’re not boiling them first. Realising you can just shove frozen peas straight into food is a real gamechanger

Not even on microwavebook.

Told this before but my neighbour makes cheese on toast in the microwave
