Recipe: Smashed Frozen Peas & Feta on Toast

Smashed Pea & Feta Toast

In the UK alone, food waste accounts for roughly 25 million tonnes of CO2 every year – equal to an average of eight meals worth of food, in every household, every single week. 

One of the most common culprits is the avocado; most of us have felt the frustration of waiting a day too long to tuck in – and finding a manky brown mush in the place where creamy green flesh used to be.

So here’s the sustainable brunch hack I’m taking into 2022; in honour of #FoodWasteActionWeek I’m sharing it with you, too. Just swap avocado toast for smashed pea & mint bruschetta!

This recipe uses frozen peas, some store cupboard staples, and sprinkling of fresh mint & feta to make a deliciously sustainable alternative to avo on toast – and by stocking up on frozen foods like this, I know that changing my brunch plans at the last minute won’t lead to wasted food at home.

  • two cupfuls of frozen peas, defrosted & cooled
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 handful fresh mint leaves / 1 tsp dried mint
  • 30g feta
  • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 slices freshly toasted sourdough
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • chilli flakes, salt & pepper to taste 


  1. Add peas, olive oil, mint leaves, lemon juice, dijon mustard and a pinch of salt to a blender and blitz until you have a coarse paste – if you like, you can keep a handful of peas aside to add in again afterwards for a ‘chunkier’ bite.
  2. Toast your slices of sourdough, then spoon over the pea mixtures.
  3. Crumble the feta over the pea toasts, and top with chilli flakes, fresh mint and an extra drizzle of oil (optional).
