Ingredients

    For The Pesto:

  • 1 10-ounce package frozen peas, defrosted
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt (plus extra for seasoning)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (plus extra for seasoning)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • For The Crostini:

  • 8 1/2-inch thick slices whole-grain baguette or ciabatta bread, preferably day-old, * see Cook's Note
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 8 cherry tomatoes (halved or 1 small tomato, diced)

Instructions

  1. For the pea pesto: Pulse together the peas, garlic, Parmesan, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper in a food processor. With the machine running, slowly add the olive oil until well combined, about 1 to 2 minutes. Season with additional salt and pepper, if needed. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.
  2. For the crostini: Preheat a stovetop griddle or grill pan on medium-high heat. Brush both sides of the sliced bread with olive oil and grill until golden, about 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the bread to a clean surface and spread 1 to 2 tablespoons of the prepared pesto on each slice.
  3. Top with tomato halves and serve.
