Oh SNAP, we’ve harvested BUNCHES of Snap Peas from our school gardens this March! Snap Peas are from the vegetable family of legumes (think beans, nuts, and grains) and are most notably a great source of Vitamin C. This powerful vitamin is water-soluble and has rich antioxidant powers to boost immunity and health! Straight from the garden, students got to taste-test these powerful greens in Green Heart lessons and on the cafeteria line.
Our new Green Heart Champion of Mitchell Elementary, Joe Pettit prepared our harvested #GreenHeartGrown snap peas into a Szechuan stir-fry sauce that was enjoyed by students in the cafeteria. Below find how to clean, prepare, and cook up these yummy, green, and nutritious veggies!
Plus as we are just around the corner from High Water Festival 2017 , we are also a part of the Pass the Peas brunch on both mornings of the fest! We are so looking forward to enjoying the best of Southern cuisine and local flavor from the Charleston area. Saturday brunch includes incredible chefs from the Obstinate Daughter & Wild Olive, The Grocery, and 167 Raw! If that isn’t amazing enough, Sunday brunch offers chefs from Lewis Barbecue, Martha Lous’s Kitchen, and The Glass Onion! Can’t wait until April 22nd and 23rd to Pass the Peas and break bread as a community out on the lawn of Riverfront Park. And what an amazing way to celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd! ?
