Peter Pea and his green friends

(Serves four to five)

For the dough:

  • 200g spelt flour
  • 40g yoghurt
  • 1 egg
  • 50ml water (if needed)
  • Salt
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder

For the filling:

  • 3 spring onions
  • 200g peas
  • 100ml milk
  • 200g sour cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 100g grated cheese

Dough: first you have to make the dough. It’s easy!

–    Just mix the flour together with the salt and the baking powder.

  • Mix the yoghurt and egg into the dough by hand until the dough feels elastic and lump-free.
  • Pour a little water into the dough if it gets too dry.
  • Wrap the dough in cling film and put it in the fridge. Brrrr.. that’s really chilly!
  • Now it’s time to pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees.

The filling: it’s the next step!

  • Wash and finely chop the spring onions.
  • Heat a little oil in a pan and cook the spring onions and peas for five minutes (but don’t let them turn brown).
  • Put the pea mixture and milk into a food processor then puree them. Alternatively, use a hand-held blender.
  • Add the eggs and the sour cream and mix in half of the cheese.

The finale: put them both together!

  • Take your dough out of the fridge and roll it flat. Adding a little extra flour to the dough will make it less sticky. Place the dough into a tart tin, press it into shape and then cut away any excess.
  • Spread the pea mixture evenly onto the dough then sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
  • Then it’s into the oven! After baking for around 30 minutes your delicious Peter Pea Tart will be ready and cooked to a beautiful golden brown. Yummy scrummy!


We wish you a Googly good meal– enjoy!
