Why not make your own Minted Peas


My local council (Wyndham City) have started a heatlhy food promotion called 'Give Peas A Chance' which I love because it has a real fun element to encourage kids to eat more veggies.  Here is a way of putting more peas on the table at dinner time.  Sweet peas, delicious mint, healthy goodness!


  • Chopping board
  • Sharp knife
  • Slow cooker


  • 2 cups peas
  • 1 cup mint roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups stock or broth


  1. Place all ingredients in your slow cooker and turn on high
  2. Leave for 2 hours and you should have beautiful minted peas
  3. Eat on their own or with some chicken, fish or red meat.  Also great with natto or tempeh for vegetarians/vegans.
  4. Enjoy!


Natto and tempeh are a form of fermented soy, the only type of soy foods recommended on the Healthy Mums 30 week online program
