Mashed Green Peas


  • 1 16-ounce package frozen peas (I use Cascadian Farms organic peas)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea or kosher salt and several grinds of the pepper mill
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons cream (could substitute milk)


  1. Bring peas to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook over low heat for 5-7 minutes or until peas are tender.
  2. Add olive oil, cream, salt, and pepper. Mash thoroughly with a potato masher. You could also puree in a food processor, but I think the masher does the job and requires less clean up!
