Easy recipe for Mushy Peas (the kind served with fish & chips in pubs!) I like a little of the mint in mine ... some pubs use it, some don't. Enjoy!

I really like this but my peas wouldnt mush properly with the potato masher so I had to put them in the blender. I really liked this because I had never had mushy peas before but my mum said they usually taste different. Read More

I love peas but I thought this recipe was not so great. Maybe I just don't like mushy peas? I don't think I will be making this again but I encourage everyone to at least try it once before deciding. Read More

Nice recipe...great comfort food and really quick! I paired these with "Baked Lamb Chops" (by Leslie)...dinner in 30 minutes or less! Try adding a splash of white or malt vinegar - awesome. Read More

Very good! A college bound friend of mine helped himself to three servings! I served them as a side dish to the Bangers and Mash recipe on this site. I didn't add mint because of the short growing season here but the peas stood for themselves. Read More

This recipe was just ok for me. Not bad but not really the authentic taste I was looking for. True mushy peas are meant to be made with marrowfat peas so maybe that would have helped. For now I'll stick with the canned versions from the British grocery store. Read More

This dish was lacking in flavor but I'm not sure what it was missing. It wasn't bad but I'm not sure I would make it again. Read More

Loooved this recipe making it for the 2nd time this week and added plain yoghurt for the creamy effect a blender works far better than a potato masher just make the distinction between mushy peas and peas puree and easy on the onions paired mine with pan fried chicken breast and black pepper sauce -meal in 30 min!

As in all "mashed" or "Mushy" peas the main ingredient should be reconstituted split or dried peas. There is a really big taste difference. Fresh peas tend to be a lot sweeter than the dried variety and have a different constituency. However for a quick version or you don't have time to reconstitute the dried variety this is not bad.
