Preparation time

2 minutes

Cooking time

8 minutes




  • 150g frozen peas
  • 4 large British Lion eggs
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • A couple of mint sprigs
  • 2 tbsp fat free Greek yogurt
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • A handful of mixed seeds


1. Place the eggs in a pan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil, once boiling set the timer for six minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. When cold enough to handle, tap the shells all over and peel away from the eggs.

2. While the eggs are cooking, heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onions and cook until soft. Add the peas and cook until the peas are hot.

3. Remove from the heat, season well and add the mint and yogurt. Use a stick blender to whizz until smooth. Divide between two small pots.

4. Place two boiled eggs in a container (halve them if you prefer) and sprinkle over seeds. Place a pot of pea puree alongside and seal. Chill until required. Will keep for two days in the fridge.
