Green Peas Salad

Share with:


The Green peas are a legume and so a very good source of protein.  A cup of raw green peas packs 30% of an adults daily fiber requirement and about half  the supply of the good old Vitamin C.  In addition to that they are also a good source of vitamin K which you know is great for your bone function.

I don’t think I have ever looked at peas with more reverence than I do now.  I do tend to put them in most of my quick fix dishes as they don’t really need much cooking.  But until now, I just thought they were just a convenient food that tasted good too.  Not any more. the power food blog group changed how I think about food.

For this week’s power food blog group, I chose to feature this twist on the pea salad. Quick ,Easy, Delicious!

38 Power Foods blog group  focuses on one ingredient each week taking inspiration from the book ; Power Foods: 150 Delicious Recipes with the 38 Healthiest Ingredients from the editors of the whole living magazine. Each week we all  come up with recipes, stories, articles to encourage eating nourishing food.

Green Pea Salad


  • 2 C Garden Peas shelled
  • 1 thai green chilli
  • 2 perfectly boiled eggs
  • 3 tbs finely chopped onions
  • 1/2 tsp roasted cumin powder
  • 2 tbs no fat sour cream/ yogurt
  • salt


  1. Steam the peas for about 3 minutes . I used fresh peas from the pods. If you are using frozen peas, simply defrost them in cold running water and steam for a couple of minutes or so.
  2. while the peas are steaming, finely chop the thai green chilli and coarsely chop the eggs.
  3. In a bowl , put the peas in and mix some salt, the cumin powder, onion, the chilli, the yogurt/ sour cream.
  4. Add in the eggs.. mix.
  5. If you have a fresh sprig of mint in your herb garden, put that on for effect!
  6. Serve cold - as a salad or with some bread crisps as an appetizer

  3. I love that salad and was happy to see the recipe for the “perfectly boiled egg”. My mom taught me to boil eggs and so while mine usually turn out fine it is nice to have the formula. Thanks!
