Smashed Pea Crostini. I love it.
Fact: There are a variety of foods which always make an appearance on my foodie playlist. 1) Tin tomatoes. 2) Eggs. 3) Rice…and so on.
Frozen peas are on that playlist too. By playlist, I of course mean pantry list. Don’t you think playlist sounds so much better though!
I love beans on toast and I love beans in things; so I liken this version of crostini to a fresh light & zesty version of “greeny things on Toast.”
Only so much lighter, quicker and better for you… err yes, on my not so guilty days when I didn’t eat cake for lunch….
There have been a variety of no bake, no cook days recently. Sad to say and I know, this is a cooking blog.
Nonetheless sometimes there are just those days or weeks, or months, (you know exactly what I mean.) They’re the days when you have to drag yourself off to that next thing you have to do & a 10 minute quick fix lunch is all you have time for, aka what you need.
Got a little more time? Then take this topping to the next level, or this Pea Pesto. It’s the best!
It too can be made so very quickly and tastes damn fine with pasta, or runny eggs, *sigh.*
Is there no dish that can’t be elevated to rock star status, with a good runny egg! Sometimes you might like it cheesey, (parmesan, feta, brilliant!) Some days, you might want to go nuts! You decide.
Whatever the outcome, save those extra minutes in cooking time. Enjoy that time out of the kitchen and give yourself permission to say “Yes!” Sometimes it’s okay to just eat peas, but if you’re going to do it.
Do it with Style!
