450g / 1 lb or a packet of yellow split peas
Water to soak
1&1/2 pints/800 ml water or stock - to cook
1 onion - small diced
1 clove garlic - crushed seasoning
Variations - use smoked garlic instead of the normal one or / and add a smoked cooked ham hock to the pot or add 3 rashers of chopped thick butchers smoked bacon to the pot or add 1 large diced potato to the mix and finish of with a tablespoon of chopped parsley (all added before cooking)


  1. To make this Pease Pudding - Braised Yellow Split Peas Recipe:
    • Soak the split peas over night (I use a 2 pint jug and fill the water to the top)
    • Wash of thoroughly, in a sieve
    • Add to a large oven proof dish and cover with 1 & 1/2 pints water
    • Add the onion, garlic, NO salt at this stage but a few twists of pepper
    • Cover with a lid or make a tin foil lid and bake in a preheated oven gas 6 / 200*c / 400* f - for 1 & 1/2 hours, stirring once or twice
    • Tip - if the pease pudding dries out too quickly and absorbs too much water, simply add a little more
    • Take the lid of, stir very well, breaking up the peas a little
    • Place back in the oven for up to 30 minutes or until the pease pudding has thickened and is the consistency of hummus or mushy peas
    • Stir well again to break up the peas and mush a little (this will happen easily by just stirring)
    • Season to taste
    • Serve hot (or cold) and with what’s left over, refrigerate - the mix will set
    • For cold pease pudding, simply cut of a slice and serve with meats or pate
    • For warm pease pudding cut of a slice and fry in butter until lightly golden on both sides
