Green Pea Popovers (Mini Yorkshire Puddings)

Green Pea Popovers (Mini Yorkshire Puddings)

by Josiah Meldrum

Bite-size Yorkshire Puddings - or popovers - made with 100% green pea flour, which makes a beautifully green, delicately pea-flavoured, gluten-free batter.

I made these Green Pea Popovers, or individual Yorkshire Puddings, quite eggy because I wasn't sure how well they'd rise - in fact I could probably have used less. 

The kids loved them. They work especially well with horseradish sauce.

Makes about 12 popovers (4 generous servings)

Ingredients

Method

  1. To make the batter, tip the pea flour into a large bowl and make a well in the middle.
  2. Break the eggs into the well and gradually beat in the flour and continue beating hard until the mixture is smooth.
  3.  Gradually add the milk and carry on beating until the mix is completely lump-free. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Pour the batter into a jug and leave it to rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes and up to an hour.
  5. Meanwhile, pre-heat the oven to 220C. Take a muffin tray and fill each whole with a little oil and heat in the oven for about 10 minutes to get the oil really hot.
  6. Remove the hot tin from the oven and carefully and evenly pour the batter into the holes.
  7. Place the tins back in the oven and leave undisturbed for 20-25 mins until the puddings have puffed up and browned.
  8. Serve immediately.

    Farmer's Pea Pie

    by The Cook and Him

    Inspired by classic British Shepherd's Pie but using split green peas in place of traditional lamb mince, this Farmer's Pea Pie from the Cook & Him makes an equally comforting and satisfying vegan alternative. A splash of soy sauce and a dash of our umami paste give a wonderful depth of flavour. It's deliciously topped off with a rich yeasty root veg mash.

    Wrinkled Pea Masala
    Wrinkled Pea Masala

    by Nick Saltmarsh

    Inspired by Felicity Cloake's Perfect Chana Masala, this simple but satisfying recipe substitutes whole wrinkled peas for the usual chana or chickpeas. It's delicious with either (or just about any whole pulse) but the especially high resistant starch content of wrinkled peas provides more nourishment for your gut flora.

    This pesto really shows off our delicious and tender shelled hemp seed, evocative of pine nuts and hemp seed. With our fermented fava bean umami paste taking the place of the usual Parmesan cheese, this happens to be vegan.
