Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time5 mins
Total Time10 mins


  • 150 g frozen peas - 1½ cups
  • sprig of fresh mint - stalk discarded and leaves chopped
  • 1 tbsp butter


  • squeeze of fresh lemon juice


  • Heat a pan of water and simmer the peas for 4 minutes. Alternatively, cook the peas in a bowl in the microwave, covered with a little boiling water.
  • Drain and return to the pan. Add the butter.
  • Smash the peas with a potato masher, or briefly pulse with a stick blender or in a mini chopper or food processor. You want to retain some texture, rather than make a smooth puree.
  • Stir through the mint leaves, season with sea salt and pepper to taste. Add a squeeze of lemon when serving with fish or lamb.
