Smashed Pea Crostini

Jump to Recipe

These little bites are so perfect for spring! They use in-season produce and are so vibrant and fresh! I used frozen peas here because they are super easy to find, but you can also use fresh. Wouldn’t these be so cute for a St Patrick’s Day celebration? The pea shoots on top almost look like clovers! I love to top them with a flaky sea salt. (I use Maldon)

These are a breeze to make and if you are serving them for a party, you can make the pea puree ahead of time. I also serve this pea puree with roasted fish or chicken and it is great! Very versatile and so fresh! It’s such a great way to get more veggies in. Plus, did you know peas are fairly high in protein?!
