Pea purée

Not yet rated

Very much the refined cousin of mushy peas, a pea purée is a versatile side which can be paired with anything from white fish to ham hock. This easy pea purée recipe contains only two ingredients and, as the peas are frozen, can be made any time of year to add a splash of colour to your plate.

Semi defrost the peas and place in a blender
  • 1kg frozen peas
Blend on maximum for 1-2 minutes. When the peas go up the sides of the blender jug stop the machine and scrape down the sides with a spatula. Turn the power down until this stops happening
As the peas fully defrost the puree will become looser - this may take some time, so be patient. As the puree loosens stop stirring it and gradually increase the speed of the liquidiser
Once the purée is completely smooth - there should be no need to add any liquid - remove from the liquidiser and pass through a fine sieve
Season to taste and serve
