Serves 4 to 6 people
Ingredients125g packet of no-soak marofat peas.
250g of Frozen Garden peas.
1/2 a chicken or veg stock cube.
350ml of just boiled water.
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
2 tbsp of freshly Chopped mint.
Place all of the above ingredients into a saucepan with the exception of the mint, salt and pepper (leave until the cooking is complete) and simmer for 20 minutes until the no soak peas are soft and plump you should still have a small bit of liquid in the pan but do not drain away.
Mash down with a potato masher and stir until you have a smoother consistency but remaining a little lumpy. If you find they are too thick add a little water or too runny place back on the heat for a few minutes until the water has evaporated stirring always.
When you have the consistency you like I then season with salt and pepper and stir through the mint.
If you don’t like mint then just leave it out.
Serve with pan fried lamb, steak, Chicken or fish, a winter stew or a roast dinner.
You cannot compare to a tinned a pea. They are addictive!!
