Some people think that Emily and I are so alike, but we are two peas in a pod that each have different personalities. We wanted to show everyone this by having one of our favorite ingredients, the pea, be a play on words, in an ingredient collaboration. Two peas in a pod. Two pea recipes made by twins. Are you getting it? 🙂

Anyway there are many different types of peas, but we chose two categories: 1 fresh and 1 easy. The easy pea is probably one of the easiest to guess-  frozen peas. Who would have thought that store-bought bagged frozen peas could be so good. We did. The fresh pea we chose is the sugar snap pea. Snap it, bite it, and eat it. The sugar snap pea is one of the most fun (and the most delicious) peas because they are sweet and extra crunchy. Since we both love peas we split it up into two jobs, me on the sugar snap peas, and Emily on the frozen. I thought sauce, she thought soup, and it’s a win-win kinda situation! Enjoy lots of our 2 Peas in a Pod pictures and our 2 recipes are below, one of my Sugar Snap Pea Sauce that I put on top of a quinoa blend with veggies and Emily made a Sweet Pea Soup that was just that!
