Giada’s Sweet Pea Crostini

Recipe here.

I made this recently on a lazy afternoon at home, when we had eaten a large, late breakfast and had a nice dinner planned, so we didn’t feel like a full lunch.  It made a perfect light and relatively healthy snack to tide us over until dinner..  The kids even liked it and the ingredients are all things that are easy to keep on hand, so it would make a great last-minute hors d’oeuvre for unexpected guests.  This would work with almost any kind of bread (I used a country loaf and just cut each slice in half to make each piece smaller) and wouldn’t HAVE to be baguette.  We have mint growing in our yard, so we always have it on hand, but if you didn’t have any and chose to leave it out, it wouldn’t be the end of the world.  I left the prosciutto off the top, because it was a last-minute thing and I didn’t have any, but it would have been nice.  A little cooked, cooled and crumbled bacon would be nice, too.  Or, you can go vegetarian, as I did, and cook the peas in vegetable stock, rather than chicken stock.  Yum.
