Creamy Mushy Peas


Now I love peas, they are my favorite vege. When I was at Bermagui (Australia) last week we had lunch at a restaurant called “Octopii”. My niece Donna and I had ‘Fish Pot Pie’ and with this pie was mashed potato and this creamy mushy peas. It was delicious and I made it with our shepard’s pie last night. Mine was a little more liquid than theirs but I think I over cooked the peas. You really should make sure you boil the water first then add the peas for only 3 min and no longer. Next time I do it I think I would roll them out on a paper towel to get as much of the water off the peas as I could.

Anyway here is the recipe. Hope you enjoy.

Ingredients
Serves: 4

345g frozen peas
4 tablespoons cream
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions
Preparation:5min › Cook:10min › Ready in:15min

Bring a shallow pot of lightly salted water to the boil over medium high heat. Add peas and cook for 3 minutes or until tender.
Drain peas and transfer to a blender or large food processor. Add cream, butter, salt and pepper and process until blended but still thick with small pieces of peas. Adjust seasonings to taste, and serve immediately.

Very simple and easy.
