What’s Cooking – Peas on Toast by Rachel Green

This is a recipe which I had the pleasure of trying during my “The Art of Seasoning” blogger event.

Rachel Green made this for us, as a demonstration on how to use a pestle & mortar.
The recipe is very quick and easy but it taste like £100 meal… really out of this world.
Try it and tell me what you think…

Pestle & Mortar Practical  “Make your own Peas on Toast”

Pestle & Mortar Practical
“Make your own Peas on Toast”


  • 8 slices French bread
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed slightly
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • 2 tbsp basil pesto
  • 250g frozen peas, thawed and drained
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp half fat crème fraiche
  • 100g feta cheese
  • A handful crushed mint leaves


  1. Brush the bread with the olive oil, and then rub with the garlic.
  2. Preheat a griddle or frying pan until very hot and then add the slices of bread in batches and toast well on both sides.
  3. Spread a little pesto on each bruschetta.
  4. Using either a pestle and mortar or a food processor (crush or pulse) the peas, mint, crème fraiche, add a squeeze of lemon juice and stir in half of the feta cheese and season with sea salt and black pepper.
  5. The pea mixture does not want to be completely smooth, it should have some texture.
  6. Spoon the mixture onto the bruschetta, top with the remaining crumbled feta cheese and sprinkle with a little paprika or cayenne pepper.
  7. This mixture is also lovely spooned over BBQ chicken or used as a dip for crudities.
