Smashed Peas with Mint Bruschetta

Real Simple MARCH 2006

  • Yield: Makes 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 baguette

  • 1 chopped fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preparation

Thinly slice half a baguette. Place the rounds on a baking sheet and broil them until they're golden brown (about 1 1/2 minutes per side).
