These smashed pea, feta and mint crostini will make you see the humble garden pea in a whole new glamorous light. With only four ingredients they are a breeze to whip up and your guests will love them!
  • 250g fresh shelled peas (or defrosted frozen peas)
  • 75 g feta, crumbled
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 1 Tbsp Greek yoghurt
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Crackers or slices of toasted baguette
  1. Bring a small saucepan of salted water to the boil.  Add the peas and boil vigorously for 4 minutes. Remove from the heat, drain and transfer to a bowl.  Use a fork to lightly crush the peas - remember, you are not looking to mash them: you want them to retain some bigger bits and texture.
  2. Add the feta, yoghurt and mint to the peas and mix well.  Check for seasoning and add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
  3. Spread a generous dollop of the pea mixture on crackers (I used my favourite Peter's Yard crackers) or slices of toasted baguette and serve with Champagne or a dry white wine.
