Summertime Minty Peas

Summertime Minty Peas
Credit goes to Sarah Raven for her recipe Crushed Peas. This recipe is only slightly different.


1-2 cups fresh peas

1 t olive oil

2 T fresh mint, finely chopped

generous pinch kosher 

fresh ground pepper


Gently pulse peas in a food processor to crush them a bit. Don't overdo it. You want to retain their texture.

Transfer peas to a small saucepan or saute pan. Add the olive oil, salt and pepper. Stir gently for 3-4 minutes over a low-medium flame. Turn off heat, add chopped mint, stir and serve.
