Key Features

  • Suitable for Vegetarians


- 500g/1lb dried Split Peas (yellow are best, but green can be used)

- 60g/2oz Butter (plus a little to butter the pudding basin)

- 1 medium Egg

- Salt and freshly-ground Black Pepper


- Soak the peas for a few hours in cold water.

- Drain, and cook until soft in new water - the time for this will depend on the age of the peas, but 40-60 is average; yellow peas taking a little longer.

- Mix in the butter, followed by salt and pepper to taste.

- Turn into a buttered pudding basin, then cover with greaseproof paper, followed by a layer of tin foil, then steam for an hour. (if you are boiling ham or bacon at the same time, the basin can be balanced in the simmering liquid).
