- Smashed Green Peas (separate recipe card below)
- Toasted bread of choice (sourdough, multi-grain, etc. – gluten-free if needed)
When toasting the bread, I like to make it quite crunchy so that it serves as a sturdy foundation for the toppings and provides a crisp contrast to the creamy peas.
Spread a layer of mustard, softened goat cheese, or cream cheese over the toast. You may also skip this step and start with the peas. Or use mayo or butter.
Spread a thick layer of the smashed peas over top. This could be a ¼ cup or more, depending on the size of the bread.
Add toppings of choice. For a filling meal, I like to add a protein like salmon or egg, and then add something for crunch, like nuts and/or seeds and a sprinkle of coarse salt.
