I went to the advanced search on SparkRecipes and plugged in peas as side dish and here is the link to the list it gave me: recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipes.asp?food=p
You can do the same for carrots. Some of the recipes are not the common peas we're discussing here, but there are some interesting ideas here for you, and maybe if you tell him "this is a different kind of pea, at least try it" you'll be able to expand his horizons! There are so many choices out here, he is really missing out on a lot of things by being so restricted in his eating. Remind him too that our taste buds change as we mature and sometimes things we couldn't stand in our younger days become one of our favorites as adults. Good luck!
