I am going to say avo toast is so 2018 and 2019 is all about mashed pea toast. Don’t get me wrong avo toast is still a favorite of mine but its good to switch things up.

Easy Peasy Mashed Pea Toast

Mashed pea toast is really easy to make and I know what you are thinking. Mashed peas on toast? When they are mashed, peas get a little creamy and the skins give some delicious texture. I love to add some, basil, parmesan and olive oil to elevate the flavor and give it pesto vibe but you certainly mash them with simple salt, pepper and olive oil.

I also love the variation of a lemony mashed pea toast. Bon Appetit has a great recipe for toast with lemony pea mash. You can add different herbs like parsley, mint or chives to mashed peas. For this recipe I topped the toast with boiled eggs to make it a complete meal.

Recipe notes for Mashed Pea Toast

The Parmesan cheese is already salty so adding salt is optional in this recipe. It is very important to use a good quality olive oil and fresh basil to get the best pop of flavor in the recipe. Also choosing a whole grain and seedy bread is the best choice for this dish. White or plain bread just won’t do it justice.

Not only is this recipe delicious it also good for you. Peas are a great source of nutrients. Including being a good source of anti aging, healthy immune system promoting antioxidants. They are also a great source of fibre without being too heavy. I used frozen peas out of convenience but you can certainly use fresh peas. Just remember to choose the smaller ones as they are sweeter and more tender.
