Before you start

Food processor | Large saucepan

Prepare the potatoes

  • Cut any larger potatoes in half
  • Put the potatoes in a saucepan, cover with cold water, add a big pinch of salt, put the potatoes, put the pan on the stove, bring to the boil and simmer for 12-15 minutes until the potatoes are tender
  • For the last 2 minutes of cooking, add the peas to the pan with the potatoes

Make the pesto

  • Pick the basil leaves
  • Peel the garlic
  • Halve the lemon and squeeze the juice into a food processor, catching any pips in your free hand
  • Add the basil, pine nuts, nutritional yeast, garlic and olive oil to the food processor and blitz into pesto
  • Taste and season to perfection with salt and pepper

Finish the dish

  • Add the pesto and vegan mayonnaise to a mixing bowl and stir to combine
  • Add the garden peas to the pan of potatoes and simmer for the last 2 minutes
  • Drain the potatoes and peas with a colander and shake to get rid of as much water as possible
  • Transfer the potatoes and peas to the mixing bowl and fold into the pesto to coat
  • Sprinkle over the rocket and serve immediately as a flavourful side
