Crushed minty peas and horseradish on sourdough toast

Peas are for more than fish and chips. They’re tiny, delicious and versatile nutrient bombs! They provide protein and fibre as well as phytonutrients; they’re cheap and convenient AND they are a local food here in the UK. But peas on toast? Yes, yes, yes – so good. Crushing the peas with some fresh mint, horseradish and a bit of creme fraiche takes them to new heights. Add a poached organic egg or some crumbled feta if you’d like.

Ingredients

  • 1 mugful of frozen peas
  • a few fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • a teaspoon of horseradish sauce
  • a dessert spoon of full fat creme fraiche
  • 1-2 slices of buttered sourdough toast
  • a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and some sea salt to taste

Nutrition Info

Peas

Peas are part of the pulse/legume family and bring with them that same pulse’y protein and fibre that’s so beneficial to health. But they also have specific phytonutrients – coumestrol and saponins, as well as flavonoids – catechin and epicatechin – that add to the health support that all sorts of plant foods give us. Phytos and polyphenols contribute to inflammation-fighting and immune support in the body. Massively important.
