spring pea hummus crostini






for the hummus:

2 cups shelled fresh peas (you can used frozen peas, thawed)

1 tablespoon lemon juice, plus more if desired

1 garlic clove

¼ cup fresh basil leaves

¼ cup fresh mint leaves

¼ teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


to assemble the crostini:

1 french baguette, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick crostini

olive oil

4 ounces goat or ricotta cheese

sea salt

flowering herbs (like chive blossoms, flowering thyme, etc), for garnish

Freshly ground black pepper, for garnish (optional)




Preheat the oven to 375°F.


Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and add the peas. Cook until tender, about 3 to 4 minutes. Drain and run under cold water. If using Frozen peas, you can skip this step.


Meanwhile, brush the crostini lightly on both sides with olive oil and arrange in one layer on a large baking sheet. Bake until lightly golden and toasted, about 6 to 8 minutes, flipping once halfway through. Set aside to cool slightly.


In a food processor, add the cooled peas, lemon juice, garlic, basil, mint, and salt. Pulse until coarsely chopped and combined. With the motor running, slowly drizzle the olive oil into the mixture.


Spread a spoonful of goat or ricotta cheese onto each crostini. Spread a layer of pea hummus over the top. Garnish with a sprinkle of salt, flowering herbs, and black pepper if desired.
