Default Zesty Peas Recipe, packed with fiber

[Edit] After the original post, I decided to change the name of this thread. I've now included a recipe, below.



This is probably a dumb question, but I've never been interested in caloric value of foods before so this one has me stumped.

Can anyone answer why cooked peas have more caloric value than raw? The only thing I can think of is how the peas are cooked, the seasoning and maybe butter is added, but there is no information regarding HOW, just different numbers.


Cooked peas: http://www.fitday.com/fitness/FoodVi...dds2-f75120000

Raw peas: http://www.fitday.com/fitness/FoodVi...dds2-f75224010

If this is the case, then the cooked peas information is basically worthless since it's not talking steaming/microwaving but actaully adding stuff in that is unknown. Correct?
