Peas are one of those staples that most people have on hand in their freezer.
You know those mornings, those awful, awful mornings, when you pick up an avocado for breakfast only to cut in and either be faced with brown mush, dark strings or a solid, flavourless underripe fruit? It's rather sad, isn't it?
Avocados have such a short window of perfection. Sigh.
That's where the humble pea comes in. Peas won't let you down.
They won't come on too strong or too bland; they're dependable. A good, honest veg where you always know what you're going to get.
They're fast to make and you've got something green to eat. Plus, they're really good for flicking at people. Ahem.
So let's cook peas in just a few minutes, while the cold-brew coffee slowly drips.
Then we'll add some fresh mint leaves and crush them beneath the prongs of a fork so the little green balls burst satisfyingly and fill the air with the smell of summer. Spread them on your favourite toast - whether rye, gluten-free, sourdough or sliced. They will make everything vibrant, green and happy - I promise. A few slices of peppery radish makes it even better.v
