Frozen peas cooked and blended up with some Greek yogurt, salt and pepper, a little fresh mint, and you have something magical and oh so simple; with a little extra protein and all round nutritional boost from hemp seeds! 

Topped with soft boiled eggs, some seasonal radish and watercress. It’s a simple brunch, light lunch or dinner dish. You could of course have a hunk of toasted sourdough on the side to wipe your bowl or plate clean.

  • 1 tbsp fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tbsp Linwoods Shelled Hemp

To Serve

  • Two boiled eggs cooked to your liking; I cook mine in boiling water for 8 minutes for a soft but cooked centre

  • Black pepper and hemp seeds to garnish 

 

Directions

  1. Place peas into a microwave safe jug. Cover with water and cook on high in the microwave for 2 minutes.

  3. Drain peas and place into your high speed blender with the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. It should only take 2 to 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Serve topped with soft boiled eggs, cresh, radish and hemp seeds and as much or as little black pepper as you fancy.
