Ingredients

  • 4 cups peas 600g
  • 3 tablespoons soft butter 45g
  • 1 twig mint about 10 small leaves
  • 2 tablespoons broth or water
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Add the peas into a pot with boiling water, leave for 1 minute, then drain (if your peas are fresh, frozen, or a little bit larger you may need to cook them for 1-3 minutes until fork-tender, my peas were thawed and very small so only soaking them in boiling water was enough).
  • Add the peas with butter and mint to a blender. Blend until smooth. Add 1-2 tablespoons of broth or water until the desired consistency is reached.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • You can add less mint at first to make sure the mint flavor is not too strong for you.
  • Don't add any broth if you want your puree thick.
  • Store the puree in the fridge for up to 3 days. Cover the puree with plastic foil, the foil should touch the surface of the puree otherwise it can become a little greyish.
  • You can also use this recipe as a crostini spread (but don't add any broth/water) and make sure to drain peas very thoroughly.
  • Calories = whole recipe. This is only an estimate!
