#Givepeasachance #Recipea Challenge

Our peas reaching for the sun

If you visited our office recently you will be familiar with our participation in the food growing challenge #givepeasachance run by Cully and Sully and GIY Ireland.

Mary, Chris, Dannielle, Siobhan and I (better known as #SpinalPeas!) had great fun growing our peas and educating the kids that visited our office on the progress.

It brought out a real competitive streak in us all. We especially loved the most recent challenge of creating a dish using the pea shoots.

Siobhan came up with the tastiest dish and she has kindly shared the #reciPEA with the rest of us!
