We all need to have recipes we love, and they change with the seasons of the earth and the seasons of our lives. I hope you will enjoy this spring pea recipe as much as I do. The first time I ate this was in Paris when I had a soiree out with my sister-in-law. It was a beautiful evening and this dish remains etched in my mind. Grow mint at your home, it is a plant that is resilient, gives back, and serves your land, body, and taste buds!
