Crostini With Peas, Mint & Parmesan

I don’t know why but frozen peas aren’t as popular as they should be. At least that’s true among my friends. With such recipes I try to change their opinion…

  • SERVES: 12 Servings
  • COOK: 10 mins


  • 12 slices baguette
  • 1/2 clove garlic
  • 1 cup peas (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • parmesan shaved
  • fresh mint torn
  • few drops balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper


  1. Grill your bread and rub all slices with garlic.
  2. Blanch peas in a large saucepan of boiling salted water about 1 minute for frozen peas and about 2 minutes for fresh.
  3. Drain peas and transfer them to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper, add extra-virgin olive oil and mash with a fork.
  4. Spread about 1-2 tbsp mixture of each toast. Garnish with shaved Parmesan, torn mint, and a few drops of balsamic vinegar. Enjoy!
