As much as I absolutely love cooking, there are days where I just want something made for me. Sadly, I live by myself (well, with a roommate but that doesn’t count) so I’m responsible for all of the cooking. This is where frozen food and instant noodles come in. I usually always have some food frozen in my freezer. And no, not just food that I’ve made. I’m talking about store bought tortellini, soups, shrimp — you name it. I’m totally guilty!!! And not ashamed. A girl’s gotta eat, y’know!
But sometimes there are just those random ingredients that just sit there FOREVER and in my freezer, it’s those sad mixed vegetable medleys. That, or peas. Sick of seeing the same frozen organic green peas over and over again, I was inspired to make a green pea, sunflower seed and miso pesto.
