Question HELP! Frozen Peas And Corn

DH had to have surgery and his doctor recommended that I
buy a bunch of inexpensive bags of frozen Peas and Corn
for post-op swelling deduction.

So now that everything is said and done,
I've got 3 bags each (they're quart sized)!

Other than a side dish of Buttered Peas or Corn,

What else can I do with these frozen veg?

Chilli, or Paella, or just mix into Spanish rice, or add some beans, onions, and a vinegar dressing for a bean salad.

Mix peas and corn in a white sauce. Serve over a couple of slices of toast. Or mashed potatoes. A very quick meal for lunch. And easy.
Or go back to your Hawaiian roots. Add them to some of those foods you brought home from your last vacation.

I do add Peas now and again to Fried Rice, but as a norm, I don't do that

Another good one is my mom's vegetable beef soup.

Put a good browning on chunks of well salted chuck roast in vegetable oil in a stainless steel stock pot. Toss in chunked carrots, celery, and onions. Sweat for a minute or two and scrape up the fond. The liquid from the veggies should be enough. Or you can add some wine. Add beef stock, fresh thyme, fresh parsley, and a coupla bay leaves, bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer.

Cover and simmer until the beef is getting soft. Add the corn and peas. Simmer just a bit longer, then chuck in some butter to finish.

Sear the corn in a hot cast iron pan to "blacken" it, mix with black beans, and serve as a side to pulled pork. Not as authentic as if you grilled the corn on the cob, but works good enough.

I hope your DH is all better, K-Girl. Nothing worse than a whimpering spouse.

I LOVE corn quesadillas with Stella Fontinella cheese. Thaw the corn and dry on paper towels. Heat a little bit of vege oil in a skillet. Add the corn, a bit of oregano, salt and pepper. Cook over med heat until corn is heated through. Use flour tortillas, sprinkle some cheese on tortilla, spread corn in a more or less single layer, top with more cheese. Cook like you normally would, except use a plate to help you flip to brown the other side because the corn has a tendency to "escape" until the cheese melts on both sides.

Himself needs a new title.

Man, that sounds good!

I wonder how well peas and carrots would do inside a Mozzarepa.
