- 10 oz package frozen peas, defrosted (I microwaved mine for about a minute)
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/2 grated parmesan
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- day old french bread or ciabatta bread
For the pea pesto: Pulse together the peas, garlic, Parmesan, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper in a food processor. With the machine running, slowly add the olive oil until well combined, about 1 to 2 minutes. Season with additional salt and pepper, if needed. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.
For the crostini: Preheat a stovetop griddle or grill pan on medium-high heat ( I toasted it, didn't want to wash another pan!). Brush both sides of the sliced bread with olive oil and grill until golden, about 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the bread to a clean surface and spread 1 to 2 tablespoons of the prepared pesto on each slice.
