Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the marrowfat peas and baking soda in a large heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave to soak for 12 hours or overnight. 

  • STEP 2

    Drain the peas and rinse them twice with cold water to wash off the baking soda. Put the beans in a saucepan and cover with 650ml cold water. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 30 mins until tender, stirring occasionally.

  • STEP 3

    Mash briefly and stir in the butter, mint and lemon, seasoning to taste.
