The flamingo has landed! We're excited to offer pink Flamingo peas from the very first UK harvest.




These amazing pink Flamingo Peas are a new variety, named by you and first grown at scale in the UK in 2021.

The subtle pink colour of these peas is the result of the intensely orange cotyledon showing through the translucent white skin. When cooked you'll find that the rich yellow / orange colour shows through more.

Pink peas make superb hummus and can be substituted in recipes for other whole peas, especially whole yellow or blue peas, or for chickpeas. We look forward to hearing how you've cooked them!


Flamingo Peas can be cooked in just the same way as other whole dried peas.

Cooking instructions

Soak overnight - or quick-soak by placing in boiling water, taking it off the heat and leaving for one hour.

After soaking , rinse, place in a pan with plenty of water, bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 40 to 45 minutes until tender.

Adding bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) when soaking will result in softer cooked peas. Cooked peas can be used immediately or frozen.
