Pea and Mint Bruschetta
Posted By Produce Department On April 9, 2014 @ 3:36 pm In Uncategorized | No Comments
The Pea and Mint Topping:
¼ cup roughly chopped shallots
A few tablespoons of water for sautéing
2 cups sweet peas, either fresh or frozen
½ cup lightly packed mint leaves, roughly chopped
½ cup lightly packed cilantro, roughly chopped
¼ cup olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 to 2 teaspoons lemon juice
½ teaspoon sea salt
freshly ground pepper to taste
12 – 16 1/4” slices baguette or ciabatta,
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/3 cup Marcona almonds, chopped
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Start by making the crostini. Lightly brush the sliced bread on both sides with olive oil. Place the slices on a sheet pan in a single layer and bake until crispy, about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the topping. Saute the shallots in a little water or oil until tender. Add the
peas to the shallots with a couple of tablespoons of water and cook until just tender. Fresh peas may take a few minutes longer than frozen; if using frozen, cook only long enough to thaw. If using frozen peas that are already thawed, you do not need to cook them at all – just mix with the shallots off of the heat.
Transfer the peas to a food processor and add the remaining ingredients. Process briefly to achieve a slightly textured consistency that is not entirely smooth.
To assemble, place a couple of tablespoons of the Pea and Mint Pesto on a crostini and sprinkle with chopped Marcona almonds. Pass around and have a party.
