Total Time: 20 minutes

Serves 4 as an appetizer



·      2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus more for serving

·      2 cups cooked peas

·      2 cloves minced garlic

·      1 small handful fresh mint and basil, chopped (to taste)

·      Kosher salt and black pepper to taste

·      6 slices of your favorite bread (I used sourdough here)

·      Burrata, micro greens, and fresh lemon juice, to serve


1.     In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the peas and the garlic, and cook for 2-3 minutes until warmed through and fragrant. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

2.     In a blender or food processor, add the pea mix, and the fresh herbs. Blitz 2-3 times, until combined but still chunky with texture.

3.     Broil the bread slices in the oven for 1-2 minutes on each side, until just warmed through and turning crispy around the edges.

4.     Spread the pea mixture evenly on each slice, and top each slice with a torn piece of burrata, a sprinkling of micro greens, and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Drizzle with olive oil if desired, and enjoy!
