Claire Wright from shares 3 simple ways to prepare peas that the whole family will enjoy.

It doesn't get much simpler than peas, butter or olive oil and some fresh mint for an easy side with a little extra freshness and creaminess!


Bring a saucepan of water to the boil, then add the peas and a pinch of salt. Boil for 3-4 minutes, until the peas are cooked (they will have bobbed up to the surface). Drain, then stir through the butter or oil and chopped mint. Season with salt & pepper, and serve alongside your main course for an extra serve of veggies at the table.
