I love cooking and pretty much 90% of the time you will find me cooking from scratch all our meals. However on occasion when the cupboards are bare the local chippy smell is too much to resist. When Phil popped to the shops to get them I decide to whizz up some homemade mushy peas.
Now I have never tasted mushy peas before so this was a first for me. I checked out a few recipes and came up with my own Fussy Foodie version.
Homemade Mushy Peas ingredients: Just some frozen peas, lemon juice and dairy free spread.
In a pan cook some frozen peas, enough for how many people you are serving (my favourites are petit pois, as they are slightly sweater). When ready drain the peas and add to a food processor, then season with salt, pepper, a squeeze of lemon and a good spoon of dairy free spread. Blitz the peas to a mush and taste for seasoning. If they need more liquid add some more lemon juice or dairy free spread and blitz again. You will need a bit of play to get the consistency and seasoning right.
That’s it my homemade mushy peas done – I love them a real compliment to fish (no batter) and chips!
