Method

  1. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil, add the peas, mint and all but a very small handful of the watercress.

  2. Return to the boil then drain and place into a food processor with the extra virgin olive oil and plenty of salt and black pepper.

  3. Blitz to a nearly smooth puree and set aside- you want a little texture left.

  4. Heat a frying pan until hot, add the chorizo and cook for 2-3 minutes until crispy and the oil has been released. Carefully lift out the crispy chorizo, leaving the oil behind.

  5. Add the bread and fry in the chorizo oil, on each side until just golden.

  6. Remove and place onto a serving plate. Top with the pea puree, remaining watercress and crispy chorizo. Finish with a scattering of the roasted cashews and black pepper and serve straight away.
