Before you start

Food processor | Large saucepan

Ingredients

  • 1kg new potatoes
  • 60g fresh basil
  • 100g pine nuts
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 1 lemon
  • 50ml olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 4 tbsp vegan mayonnaise

  • 25g rocket

Method

  1. 1.

    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.

  2. 2.

    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
