Smashed pea and goat’s cheese rolls

Serves:

Makes 10 rolls

Ingredients

  • 200g frozen peas
  • 1 clove garlic, finely crushed
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar 
  • 10 bread rolls (your choice)
  • 100g goat’s cheese
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme (or other fresh herbs)

Method

Place the peas in a saucepan of boiling water, and cook for 3-5 minutes or until tender. Cool under a cold running tap and drain.
 
Pop the peas into the food processor (or use a hand blender) and puree together with garlic, mint, olive oil and vinegar, until the mixture looks like a rustic paste.
 
Spoon pea mix into rolls and top with as much goats cheese as you like. Add a spinkle of herbs and season with salt and pepper.

Note

  • To give the rolls an extra kick, you can add some fried shallots or chilli to the pea puree or garnish the rolls with semi-dried tomatoes and roasted red peppers.
  • This mix also tastes wonderful on fresh rye bread. 
  • Use any leftover mix as a dinner time condiment, alongside a steak or chicken breast.
