Mushy Peas Recipe

Mushy peas are delicious and easy to make once they have been soaked! They go perfectly with my vegan style fish ‘n’ chips or spicy sweet potato wedges! Peas are a great source of vegan protein!

Mushy Peas

Serves 2-4


250g                  Dried marrowfat peas

1tbsp                 Bicarbonate of soda

850ml + 600ml  Filtered water

1/4tsp                Sea salt

1tsp                   Sugar (Optional)


The day before you plan to eat the mushy peas, dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in 850ml of boiling water. Now put the peas into a large bowl and pour over the water. Leave to soak overnight.

The next day drain and rinse the mushy peas. Store in a container in the fridge until you plan to cook them.

Bring to the boil 600ml of water. Add the peas and add salt to taste. Simmer on a medium heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the peas are mushy.

Serve warm with vegan style fish ‘n’ chips! Store leftovers in a container in the fridge.
