Clever home cooks and chefs have been hiding vegetables in our favorite foods for years. What was once a way for parents to trick their kids into eating undesirable foods has more recently been adopted by chefs as a way to reimagine classic dishes.

We at the Taco Cleanse believe in experimentation. If smashed peas appeal to your palate, we encourage you to eat them with pride.
