How to Make Canned Peas Taste Good

Some people don't enjoy vegetables' taste -- with canned peas high on many least-favorite lists. Since vegetables are an important part of a balanced diet, look for a way to make the peas more palatable, especially for young children. A few household items can help improve canned peas' taste.

Step 1

Add basic seasonings to the peas. Salt and pepper work well, but oregano, garlic powder, chili powder or a variety of different popcorn seasons can help hide the taste of the peas as well.

Step 2

Melt cheese or butter over the peas. The addition increases fat and calories in the peas, but these ingredients provide a strong taste that can distract you from the peas' taste.

Step 3

Liquefy the peas in a food processor and add the peas to your favorite fruit or vegetable juice. The juice's flavor will be pleasing to your palate, and the addition of peas will help keep the nutritional value intact while not adding too much of an unpleasant taste.

Step 4

Add drained peas to your favorite type of gelatin while the gelatin sets. The peas will be suspended in the gelatin, and their taste largely will be hidden within the gelatin's fruit flavor.
