Avocado Peas Crostini with Ricotta

the perfect green summer appetizer 

Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 cup fresh peas
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 small baguette
  • 1/4 cup part skim ricotta
  • pea shoots

Instructions

  1. Finely chop the cilantro and mince the garlic. 

  2. In a medium sized bowl, add the cilantro, garlic, avocado, peas, and the juice of one lemon. Use a pastry cutter or "masher" to mash together the ingredients. Be sure to mash the peas in addition to incorporating the ingredients. 

  3. If the baguette is not fresh, heat up or cook the baguette. (I often used the half baked baguettes from trader joes so they are warm and soft when you need them). 

  4. Cut the baguette horizontally on a bias. 

  5. Add the pea avocado mixture to each baguette. 

  6. Top with a dollop of ricotta and a couple of pea shoots.
