Crushed Minty Peas & Avocado Toasts

Crushed Minty Peas & Avocado Toasts

This is a super fresh, summery take on smashed avocado… serve as a dip with crunchy veggies to dunk or dolloped on top of toast for a deliciously light breakfast, brunch or snack.

 

To serve 2:

Ingredients:

2 handfuls of podded garden peas

1 avocado

A small handful of mint leaves, removed from the stalks

1/4 of a lemon

Olive oil

Sea salt 

Freshly ground black pepper

4 slices of bread of your choice, we love using Vegbred

 

Method:

 

1. Bring a pan of fresh water to a rolling boil and prepare a bowl of ice water. 

2. Tumble in the peas and allow them to cook for about 1 minute, no longer! You want fresh sweet tasting peas still with a little bite. 

3. Drain the peas through a colander, pop them into the ice water and allow them to chill completely.

4. Drain the peas and pat them dry with a clean tea towel or kitchen paper before putting them into a mixing bowl.

5. Crush the peas with a potato masher or the back of a fork. 

6. Scoop out the avocado and add to the peas then mash the avocado, combining the peas as you go.

7. Finely chop the mint leaves and add the to peas and avocado along with a good squeeze of lemon juice, a teaspoon of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper then mix everything together.

8. Toast your choice of bread until it's nice and crunchy then dollop spoonfuls of the pea and avocado mixture on top.

 

For best results, gobble immediately…

 

Enjoy!
