Crushed Pea & Mint Ciabatta…yummy!!
This is recipe is soo quick and easy to knock together from things i usually have in the house. It’s also a great way to sneak some vegetables onto cheese on toast.
Ingredients: Serves 2
- 1 cup frozen garden peas
- 1 tsp crushed garlic
- 1 tbsp homemade or shop bought mint sauce
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp chopped pine nuts
- 4 slices of ciabatta (switch to gluten free if required)
- 50g goats cheese (feta cheese works really well too)
- salt and pepper
- peashoots (optional)
- drizzle of balsamic glaze (optional)
And how to do it:
Defrost the peas in a colander under luke warm water.
Add the peas, garlic, mint sauce, olive oil and pine nuts to your food processor and pulse a couple of times or until you’ve reached your desired consistency (personally i like mine a little lumpy).
Taste and season with salt and pepper.
Lightly toast your ciabatta slices on one side.
Load the un-toasted side of your ciabatta with the pea crush and top with goats cheese (dividing equally between each ciabatta slice).
Return your loaded ciabatta under the grill for a 2-3 mins or until the goats cheese is lightly browned.
Serve with pea shoots or a salad of your choice and a drizzle of balsamic glaze.
