Mushy Peas

January 22, 2012


As you well know- if you’ve been reading this blog any time at all- I’m obsessed with British culture. (I’m currently watching the Forsyte Saga, so good!) Including the food.

I first tried mushy peas while in London a few years back. At first, I was skeptical. Mushy peas isn’t a flattering name- sounds about as appetizing as a jar of baby food. But I assure you it’s much tastier than that. And pairs perfectly with fish and chips.


1 10 oz bag of frozen peas

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup cream

1 Tablespoon butter

Directions: Boil the peas on the stove top with salt for about 3 minutes, until tender.


Drain and transfer to a food processor. Add the cream and butter and pulse until just blended. A few whole or partially whole peas should remain. Don’t puree it to death.


Serve as a side dish with these panko baked fish sticks and home style potatoes.

Haha, I couldn’t agree more about mushy peas. Such a horrible name, but so delicious if cooked the right way.

Thanks for the recipe!
