Smashed pea and goat’s cheese rolls

Add some pizzazz to your next picnic with these flavoursome Smashed pea and goat’s cheese rolls. Utterly delish AND healthy!

Makes 10 rolls


  • 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)


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.


  • 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.
