AWESOME EXTRAS

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cook peas via your favorite method and combine with garlic, lemon juice, sea salt, and black pepper in a food processor.
  3. Pour in olive oil as you blend until desired consistency is reached. After 1/3 cup I was good to go!
  4. Next chop avocado, tomato, and fresh parsley and toss together. Drizzle with olive oil and a teeny bit of your favorite vinegar [optional] as well as a tiny pinch of salt and toss to coat.
  5. Slice your baguette and brush each side lightly with olive oil or melted butter.
  6. Arrange flat on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until lightly golden and crispy. You can underbake for slightly chewy crostini or toast a bit longer for extra crunch; both ways are delicious!
  7. Allow toasts to cool a bit, then top with pea puree and your avocado/tomato mixture.
  8. Dig in!
