Homemade Nando’s Macho Peas

Homemade Nando’s Macho Peas


  • Peas (a handful per person, I used frozen petit pois)
  • Knob of butter (or vegan spread) or a splash of olive oil
  • Pinch of finely chopped red chilli (per person)
  • Pinch of finely chopped fresh parsley (per person)
  • Pinch of finely chopped mint (per person)
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Cook the peas in salted water for around 4-5 minutes (according to pack instructions if using frozen). Drain.
  2. Remove a third of the peas to another bowl and mash them with a fork or potato masher.
  3. Heat a knob of butter or splash of oil in a pan (enough to just coat your peas) and add the chilli, then the parsley and mint.
  4. Stir in the whole and mashed peas, season well with salt and pepper and mix well. Add more mint or parsley to taste.
  5. Heat through and serve.
