This is such an easy recipe for peas, and a nice change to the ordinary steamed preparation. Fresh mint adds a boost of flavor and a wonderful contrast to the sweetness of the peas. And, you won't have to chase the peas around your plate with a knife and fork!
Minty Mushy Peas
2 T olive oil
1 bunch spring onions, chopped (green onions may also be used)
1 handful fresh mint leaves
1 pound frozen peas
2 large pats of butter
A splash of heavy cream
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Heat the oil in a pan and add the chopped onions, mint, and peas. Cover and leave for a few minutes to steam. Pulse with heavy cream in a food processor or blender until smooth. Add a dollop of butter on top and season to taste.
