Not physically on it but with it?
PiggyPlumPie · 12/09/2022 19:39
We often have them to add colour if the plate looks too bland.

I try to eat peas once a day so I'm firmly in the 'with' camp
FilthyforFirth · 12/09/2022 19:40
Peas should never be on any plate, they are the devils food.
GiantTortoise · 12/09/2022 19:41
Is it that the "no" person doesn't like peas? Or that they don't think anyone should have peas with a roast? The first is fair enough, the second is ridiculous!
CorvusPurpureus · 12/09/2022 19:42
Technically no - it should be greens. Peas are too sweet. But meh if that is what your family like!
Sunnyqueen · 12/09/2022 19:42
I mean it's not wrong to but there are so many better options why would you?
FlissyPaps · 12/09/2022 19:42
My gran puts mushy peas on a roast dinner.
Don’t knock it til you try it.
OhLordyWhatNow · 12/09/2022 19:42
Garden peas or mange tout - yes, why wouldn't you
Grey marrowfat peas from a can 🤮 or mushy? - no, the devils vegetable
KiraKiraHikaru · 12/09/2022 19:44
The no person likes peas but will not accept them as being part of a roast dinner
PeanutButterCheesecake · 12/09/2022 19:45
Yes they should be on there, but not the only vegetable - should be at least 3 different ones
AlisonDonut · 12/09/2022 19:46
Peas are fine as part of a roast dinner. If No person makes the dinner then they can leave the peas off.
Shodan · 12/09/2022 19:48
Only if there's nothing more interesting to have.
I once roasted pickled onions to have with a roast dinner, as someone was adamant that they were delicious. I queried the 'pickled' bit, but they were certain.
They were not delicious. Not in the slightest. Peas would definitely have been better.

With lamb- fine, the mint and sweetness goes well. Not on any other roast though
JenniferAllisonPhillipaSue · 12/09/2022 19:55
DH likes marrowfat peas. I like garden peas. Both can appear on a roast as an accompanying vegetable. But not together.
mac1974 · 12/09/2022 19:56
Yes. You can never have too many types of vegetables with a roast dinner. The more the merrier.
Epicstorm · 12/09/2022 19:57
I love peas so yes. When I was had it was always mushy peas but I tend to have garden. Always a choice at the carvery near us.
