BROAD BEAN AND PEA CROSTINI

A fresh spring entree option.

Method

Preheat oven to 200°C.  

Place the slices of ciabatta or baguette onto a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil and season with sea salt. Place in the oven for five minutes and then turn over and cook for a further three minutes or until lightly toasted. Remove and then cool slightly.  

Remove the grey outer skin off the broad beans so that you are just left with the vibrant green bean inside.  

Place beans, peas, garlic, oil, lemon juice and mint in a bowl and mash until just combined. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.  

Put the feta, cream cheese and olive oil into a food processor and mix until well incorporated.
