I’m always looking for an excuse to use my food processor, hence my obsession with all things pesto. It’s so easy to make – just throw your ingredients into the food processor or blender and voila you have pesto – a pasta/pizza sauce, sandwich spread, dip, salad dressing, marinade, all in one. And not to mention, in a matter of seconds. Recently I had leftover mint, basil, and frozen peas, so naturally, into the food processor they went. You all have that bag of peas that’s been sitting in your freezer – time to put it to use in this pea pesto crostini recipe!
This crostini is the perfect party or dinner appetizer for a group, but it’s so delicious you won’t want to share! Refreshing mint pesto, creamy burrata, and crispy prosciutto, all atop toasted baguette slices – yum! I love this versatile pesto because it compliments many different flavors so you can easily swap out the burratta and prosciutto in this recipe for your favorite ingredients. I can’t wait to try this pea pesto crostini with different toppings, like roasted heirloom tomatoes and burrata, bell peppers and cucumber, grilled corn and lime juice, roasted carrots and goat cheese… the list goes on.
