Mushy Peas I Recipe
Mushy Peas are a great side dish with entrees such as fried cod or savory salmon, and sides like tater tots. Note: You can add more liquid (water or cream) depending how mushy you want your peas. Use low fat milk if you're calorie-conscious.
Mashed green peas with butter, mint, green onions, and a hint of brown sugar, make a great Irish-style side dish for your meal.
Great. I combined Mushy Peas II recipe with this one and added the green onions and mint. Also, I used my favorite peas "Le Sueur Very Young Early Peas" in the silver can. (they are THE best!!) My boyfriend from Ireland liked this recipe very much.
Not bad. I am not a pea lover, but my husband adores them, so I needed a recipe that I might want to eat too. It was actually pretty good. I think next time I will use less pepper and perhaps add some sauted onions or crispy bacon. However, you got this girl to eat peas, so consider this recipe a success!
EASY FAST DIFFERENT. Its hard to make different because it is just mashed peas. But it's different, it's fun. I saw Anthony Bourdain have this in Britian so I looked them up. They said try a spoonful without, then drizzle a tiny bit of vinegar over it and try again. Very good with the vinegar. I did not see a recipe that mentioned it so I choose to use Malt vinegar. That is what makes it different. Try it. I just used my immulsion mixer, and did not mash totally.
Tasted a little bland. I added some fresh mint leaves and some chilli powder. This definitely elevated the dish. Thank you!
TIP: For authentic mushy peas as served in English/Irish pubs, you never start with canned or frozen peas. This is an easy basic recipe to which you can add seasonings, that I will be bringing to a St Paddy's day party hosted by Irish friends from Dublin: Soak dried peas overnight in a large bowl with several cups of water, and 2 tsp. of baking soda. The baking soda is important as that is what makes the peas break down. The next day, drain the peas, add water just to cover, and simmer for 20 mintues. The peas will break up nicely without mashing. Add a little water if needed to bring to the consistency you like. Don't season until the end or it toughens the peas. It's great served with malt vinegar, and you can add mint if desired.
The best mushy peas ever! So easy to make! If you don’t have time to soak the marrow fat peas I suggest you use those recipe I had mine with a meat pie ohhhh glorious
