“Have kids who hate green peas? Well, everyone seems to have that problem! I randomly added cheese & butter to my green peas (despite being a lover of peas) and it tasted great! In fact, at the end of the day, I got more sick of the cheese than peas. Amount of cheese? One slice. (: This is even for the health-conscious...enjoy! For me, I can polish off the whole thing, but to be on the safe side serve this for two. (: You can do this for just about any vegetable, in particular non-leafy ones like carrots & peas.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil water, not too much. ~ 1 cup.
  2. When the water boils, add the peas and wait for it to boil again.
  3. Once it boils, remove the water as fast as you can (you can just transfer it to another bowl, but that will make the peas cool faster).
  4. Place the slice of cheese on top and wait for it to melt, characterized by it molding into the shape of the peas.
  5. Meanwhile just add butter randomly, to taste. Butter melts even at room temperature so don't be hasty and add it before the cheese since cheese is harder to melt.
  6. Simply mix the whole mixture - your cheese won't chunk up, don't worry!
  7. Voila! Serve while still hot!
