Very Veggie: Jamie's Cheesy Peas

Personally I love peas. They are sweet and easily tossed into all kinds of dishes. Nick doesn't mind peas in curries, pasta dishes or as part of whatever dish but finds them boring on their own. While I sometimes love to eat them on their own as a side to my potatoes. When I was watching a Jamie Oliver Marathon on 24-Kitchen a couple of weeks ago, I saw this recipe for cheesy peas. A very easy way to pimp you peas. So I thought we would give it a try and afterwards Nick stated that he liked them much better this way. Mission accomplished! Original recipe from Jamie Oliver.

Jamie's Cheesy Peas: (serves 2)
- 4 big handfuls (frozen) peas
- olive oil
- 1 handful of parmesan cheese
- 1 lemon
- white pepper

Boil the peas until they are still slightly crispy. Drain them and keep aside a small cup of the cooking water. Put hte peas back in the pan with some of the reserved water and a splash of olive oil. Add the Parmesan and stir until all peas are coated with a layer of cheese. Add a squeeze of lemon juice nad some white pepper to taste, Serve immediately.
