Pea mash

Serves 4 people

Everyone loves mashed potatoes, but you need your greens as well. Toss in some pureed peas and you've got colour and taste to spare. Oh, and these peas don't fall off your knife!

  • 2 medium waxy potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 500g frozen peas
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ bunch parsley finely chopped
  • salt and ground white pepper

1 Steam the potatoes over a saucepan of simmering water for 20 minutes, until tender, then press through a fine sieve.

2 Cook the peas in a large saucepan of boiling water for 5 minutes, until tender, then drain and set aside to cool slightly. Transfer to a blender and purée with the olive oil and parsley. Stir into the potato purée and season with salt and ground white pepper.
