Mame Gohan (rice with green peas)
“Mame (まめ/豆) ” is the word for the food group including peas and beans in Japanese. In English, the nearest thing is the class of vegetables known as legumes. Spring is the season for fresh green peas, if you see some fresh on the market, do try this recipe. Choose good firm pods! Some of them are almost empty…
I love rice, and in this “Mame gohan” recipe the fresh green peas colour tells us it is Spring! Enjoy seasonal vegetables!
