Truth be told, I've never thought of green peas as a super delicious item that I had to have on my dinner plate.
I could totally take or leave them, so I felt incredibly uninspired by my ideas when I was brainstorming a recipe with green peas.
Peas happened to be a favorite of both of my great-grandmothers, and this Green Pea and Mushroom recipe is based on similar recipes those fine ladies used to make.
I decided that this simple recipe would be acceptable to them but also acceptable to us - meaning it's healthy, delicious, simple, and easy.
