Mushy Peas in Cream
I have a very fond memory of a rainy evening many years ago in an English pub with my two sons enjoying a pint together, and eating fish and chips, with an ample side of "mushy peas".
They are so simple, so sweet, and so delicious! Classic spring comfort food!
1 c. fresh, shelled peas (or frozen)
2 Tbsp. heavy cream*, warmed
1 Tbsp. snipped fresh mint (optional)
Blanch the peas by dipping them into simmering water (or steam) for 1 minute. Drain well. Combine warm peas and cream (+mint, if using) in a small food processor. Pulse a few times, to get a nice creamy-chunky texture. Serve right away.
*You could use Pea Cream if you have any leftover. –see Pea Cream Recipe
