I like the idea of adding cooked peas. But I would use petite peas.

I would use frozen peas and just defrost them.

Aren't petite pois and frozen peas the same thing? When my parents lived in Canada, and of course, didn't speak French, the joke was Petty paws when my mom bought petite pois....

Baby peas, CWS. I love the frozen petite pois, but the regular full grown frozen peas are too starchy for me and have a totally different texture.

Yup, feel the same way! I always buy the petite pois and my hubby always buys the regular ones. Even organic peas are not the same as the babies.

Are those fresh peas, frozen peas, canned peas?

They are frozen, but they taste like fresh when steamed. I find such a difference between the frozen peas and the frozen petite pois/baby peas!
