Recipe: Mushy Peas

My recipe for mushy peas is a great way to up the family’s greens, without pointlessly slogging. Follow the recipe below to make the perfect accompaniment to fish and chips. Alternatively make a large batch (minus the salt) as a quick weaning meal.




10 mins


  • 1x finely chopped clove of garlic
  • 3x teaspoons of dried mint
  • 1x table spoon of apple cider vinegar
  • 1x large tin of garden peas
  • 1x tablespoon of cream cheese
  • 100ml of cream
  • salt and pepper
  • Olive oil


  • Add the oil to a pan and put on a gentle heat
  • Throw in your chopped garlic and lightly fry until golden
  • add the mint and vinegar
  • Pour in your tin of peas and mash as they cook
  • Once your peas have mash down into the garlic and mint add the cream cheese and mix until the cheese has worked its way through all of the pea
  • Increase the heat and slowly pour in the cream, whisking and mixing as you pour
  • Once the cream has worked through the mix you should have a more liquid sauce.
  • Turn the heat back down and allow the sauce to reduce
  • Season to taste
  • If you’d like the sauce thick add a teaspoon of flour and and a second tablespoon of cream cheese
