Thanks! Great answer cjohnson728. It makes a lot of sense, and I didn't think about cooked taking different volumes.
By the way, I don't like peas either. They are my least favorite of all the veggies. But I found a killer recipe for them which I'll be making today. The only reason why I am bothering with peas is that they have are packed with fiber.
If the recipe comes out as good as I hope I'll post it.
