I have yet to recreate the perfect texture with a potato masher as many sites suggest and I'm still not sure about the mint. But when I get a hankering, there's not much else to do but make mashed peas.

(I wish I could make perfect Mashed Peas!)
(I could listen to this all day)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 bunch spring onions, chopped
- 1 handful fresh mint, leaves picked
- 1 pound (500 grams) frozen peas
- 2 large knobs butter
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Heat the oil in a pan and add the chopped onions, mint, and peas. Cover and leave for a few minutes to steam. Mash with a potato masher. You can do this with a food processor as well, just pulse it until smooth. Whether mashing or pulsing, when it's done add the butter and season very carefully, to taste.
