Cumin Peas and Carrots

Abby is... well, she's not always interested in trying new foods. I have found that my best way of getting her to try new flavors is to match them with recognizable foods. Case in point: peas. Abby loves peas - one of her favorite snacks is frozen peas. So tonight, I dressed up our boring peas and carrots side dish with a little Indian-inspired flair. Abby saw that it was peas and gobbled them down, with a few "yum"s thrown in for good measure.

Cumin Peas and Carrots
Total time: 10 minutes

1 lb bag of frozen peas and carrots blend
1 tsp honey
3/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp dry mustard

Combine the frozen peas and carrots and 1/4 cup water in a saucepan - cook over medium heat until heated through; drain, if necessary. Return the veggies to the saucepan and add all other ingredients, cooking and stirring over low heat for about 1-2 minutes. Serve.
