Thanks to Hodmedod’s for this recipe! Pease pudding – AKA porridge or pottage – is easy and satisfying. Eat hot, or, of course, cold. This version goes well hot with roast veg and greens, or cold as a sandwich spread.
- 500 g yellow split peas
- 1 small potato finely chopped
- 1 onion finely chopped
- Bouquet Garni 2 cloves
- Pinch salt and pepper
- Knob of marg
- Put all the ingredients except marg in a heavy pan and cover with water.
- Bring to the boil, cover and simmer until everything has cooked down (top up with water as needed and stir occasionally to stop it sticking) - it will take about an hour.
- Add the marg, a bit more salt and pepper to taste and mash it up; you can make a smoother pudding using a stick blender.
