mint and pea crostini
two cups fresh green peas
handful of fresh mint
one tiny garlic clove
extra virgin olive oil
boil peas, plunge into cold water bathe. crush/chop/blend mint and garlic, and peas. a few glugs of oil, salt and pepper and lemon, to taste. smear on crusty bread, maybe a few mint leaves to top.
posh mushy peas, i'd like to think
with two mint plants near death in the kitchen, i was inspired to harvest.
the green colour, so springy and the flavour so crisp and sweet.
+ wine and cheese board, perfect.
