Burrata with Lemon Mint Peas & Breadcrumbs

Full disclosure, I truly intended to share this dish with my roommate as a lovely late Sunday afternoon snack, however, when it was ready to be eaten she was enjoying a weekend nap and so I ate the whole thing myself. She later asked if there were any left overs (because I could have easily put half of this in the fridge) but I had to admit I'd just casually eaten half a bag of frozen peas and an entire burrata in one sitting.  

So I'm kinda done with winter and it looks like spring is finally springing but it always take a little while for the produce to catch up. So this is a cheats spring lunch in that two (peas and breadcrumbs) of the three main ingredients are frozen... but when the peas pop in your mouth with the fresh lemon and mint and you mix the creamy burrata with the crispy breadcrumbs, I promise it'll satisfy all your spring cravings.  



1/2 bag of frozen peas 

juice of 1 lemon

handful of mint

handful of breadcrumbs

pinch of chili flakes

olive oil 

little bit of butter

salt & pepper



Steam or microwave the peas. Chop the mint. Once the peas are cooked, add in butter, mint, and lemon juice. Stir and season with salt and pepper.

Drizzle olive oil in a small pan. On a medium heat, toast the breadcrumbs with the chili flakes until crispy. Season with salt and pepper. 

Pour peas in a bowl, place burrata in the center. Scatter the breadcrumbs over the peas and cheese. Eat immediately.
