I made these peas for dinner last night and man oh man are they great
You can make the peas as mild or spicy as you like. The heat comes from your choice of hot sauce. I think these would also be great with a sweet chili sauce.
The recipe calls for grilling the peas before tossing them with the spiced butter. I opted to roast them in the air fryer since it was already hot and ready to go after the chicken was done. How I did that is added to the recipe
The salad was simply green leaf lettuce topped with feta cheese, sliced strawberries, and croutons that I toasted in the air fryer. Hummm see a pattern here?
Oh yeah, I made a vinaigrette using one Tbsp. rice vinegar and 2 Tbsp. avocado oil, 2 tsp. orange zest, 2 Tbsp. orange juice, a tsp. honey, a medium shallot thinly sliced, and a grated clove of garlic. Yummmeeee

koko’s air fryer instructions
Preheat air fryer to 400*F
Toss peas with oil and 1/4 tsp salt in a large bowl. Add half the peas to the basket and set timer for 10 minutes. Start frying, the shake or stir the peas half-way through frying, fry until the peas begin getting golden brown with little char spots on them.
