Ok, so tonight I went for a light supper: a pea and fava bean spread on garlic croutons.
Lets face it, it’s pretty impossible to find fresh sweet pea pods in the dead of the Montreal winter. Forgive me Jamie, I used frozen peas and fava beans (even though you specifically says not too… I guess I’ll have to redo this one in the summer, to use the real fresh stuff).
I love it when recipes call for using a pestle and mortar. I find it makes things so hands-on! I just love it and it really help to release all of the flavours.
A little smashed peas, a little fresh mozzarella, a little olive oil…. Voila!
Here’s the recipe if you guys want to try it!
