Easy Peasy Smashed Peas

smashed peas

Alright, let’s talk smashed peas! Next to avocado on toast, smashed peas on toast is probably one of my most frequently eaten savoury breakfasts (or quick fix lunches). It’s super easy, quick to make and tastes delicious.

To be honest, I can’t really remember when I first came across smashed peas on toast, but it was at least a few years ago. Either way, I’m very glad I did and if you’ve never tried it before I’m even happier that I get to introduce you to it.

Now, of course you can eat them on toast with nothing else, it’s already delicious. But most of the time I like to pimp my smashed peas up a little bit. For example in the photos for this recipe where I added some thinly sliced radishes and fresh mint.
