Mushy peas are a staple British comfort food. Basically the dish is peas, pureed with olive oil, mint, butter and brown sugar. Absolutely delicious.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Cook the peas, mint, and green onions, stirring occasionally, until they are tender.
  • Transfer to a food processor along with broth, butter, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Puree until almost smooth, but with some lumps. ( note add broth a little at a time until desired consistency is reached.
