Minted Pea Mash

No fresh vegetables in the fridge and only a bag of peas lurking in the freezer? No worries, this takes minutes to prepare and is equally successful with freshly podded peas and fresh mint may be replaced by pre-frozen - but please do not use dried. Place a spoonful of mash in the center of a plate then top with a piece of grilled fish or meat.

For 4 Serving(s)


  • 500 g fresh or frozen baby peas
  • handful of fresh chopped mint
  • knob of salted butter
  • heaped tbsp of créme fraiche

Minted Pea Mash Directions

  1. Zap the peas in the microwave until al dente which if they are tender, would only be enough to defrost or if you are using fresh peas, simmer until tender. Add the mint, butter and créme fraiche then either mash with a hand held potato masher or pulse in a food processor, retaining a little texture. Serve hot
