Minty Mushy Peas

    This is an easy recipe for mushy peas. I like a little mint in mine, but omit if you don't care for it.

    It’s so good! And so easy. I made it both with an without butter, and the butter is what makes it that familiar comfort food & gives it the same consistency as authentic mushy peas. That said even without butter it’s deliciously sweet.  -  22 Apr 2018


    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.  -  07 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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.  -  26 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
