Do you ever think you’ve seen a recipe somewhere and when you look for it you can’t find it?

I was convinced I’d read In Nigella Lawson’s How to Eat or Nigella Express about pimping up frozen peas with creme fraiche and mint to make posh mushy peas.

But I couldn’t find it anywhere. I have searched all of her books but don’t have a clue who to credit for my inspiration, I can’t imagine I’m the first person to do this. Maybe it came to me in a dream?!


Frozen peas, creme fraiche, mint sauce, black pepper and salt.


Combine ingredients in stick blender cup and whoosh. It’s that simple. Serve alongside fish cake and potato wedges for an easy, healthier, poshed up kids’ fish and chip style supper.

    Yes!! I’m so with you on this. I’ve been looking through all my Nigella books today looking for this, convinced I got the recipe from her. So that makes two of us!
