I’m intrigued to hear the basis of the argument that they aren’t.

apparently greens are a specific subset of food and peas aren’t part of that, or something

my argument was “but they’re green”

I always think of greens as broccoli, green cabbage, spinach, etc. Stuff that got boiled for ages and tasted terrible.

Peas are too nice to be greens.

Peas are legumes, not cruciferous, everyone knows that

spinach is nice raw though

In my household, greens would have been a catch-all for any vegetables (excl. potatoes) on my plate that I was refusing to eat

I don’t think I’d bother with any of them were it not for a vague notion that they’re good for me. Maybe a bit of stir-friend broccoli or shredded cabbage. But they’ve been done a massive disservice by school canteens and the like

Voted no as I generally think of greens as being leafy veg.

Broccoli is regent amongst all which grows from the earth, let me state that plainly.

Is that thread for past crimes as well as ongoing ones? I can’t remember the last time I had badly overcooked veg.

I would call them greens on account of being green but I think yer leafy bois do offer different nutritional stuff so are different probably
