{meatless mondays : seasonal english peas simmered in a san marzano sauce}

6 May

sanmarzanoenglishpea-8

a co-worker suggested i try this recipe when i said, “what should i do with the delicious english peas i bought today?”

it’s a pretty basic recipe – with a special ingredient of cinnamon… which i must admit, i don’t really ever use in my cooking – unless a recipe specifically calls for it.  i don’t keep in the pantry or anything… although, i am really wanting an organic spice rack – should anyone be wondering what to randomly gift me 🙂

what i love about this recipe is the simplicity – and i was surprised at how nicely the cinnamon complimented the overall dish.  the key is always adding a little at a time… the rice also brought the dish together – i used simple jasmine rice for this dish.  i like the texture and flavour.
