I usually work with frozen peas, but these looked really fresh and tasty so I thought I would try and figure out something yummy to do with them. Martha gave me the inspiration for this dish, I just had to veganize it. It turned out really nice, and the delicate flavour of the lemon worked well with the sweet peas.
