Spanish Flavours is on our list of must-own cookbooks for this spring. London-based chef José Pizarro’s volume of regional Spanish dishes from tapas and peasant dishes to restaurant-worthy composed dishes is our latest obsession. First up: a super-simple dish for any meal of the day, accented by Serrano ham. 

This dish was one of my favorites when I was a student. It is really easy to make and filling—perfect for your pocket. These braised peas (without the egg) would make a lovely side dish, maybe with a piece of simply grilled chicken or fish. You can bake this recipe in individual small dishes as well — easy for a simple supper for one after work. Add some chopped mint if you have some, to give freshness to the dish.
