Creamy Pea Crostini With Pancetta

Beautiful green creamy pea puree spread on crisp crostini, sprinkled with bits of pancetta and flavored with mint, chives, and lemon, these pea crostini appetizers are unforgettable. Aren’t these pea crostini the most beautiful color? This bright, vibrant green certainly isn’t what pops into your head when you hear “pea green.”

These creamy pea crostini are a gorgeous green color and are almost too beautiful to eat. Even better, these appetizers taste as good as they look! You’ll love the subtle flavors of fresh mint, chives, and lemon zest. The salty bite of pancetta and parmesan are a perfect contrast to the naturally sweet, creamy pea spread. Peas on bread? Sounds unlikely to you? Surprise! The fresh flavor of these creamy pea crostini will totally win you over. And is this only a spring time recipe? Definitely not! Don’t we all need a bright pop of green on those gray winter days? I know I do! For a quick pick-me-up, I often make roasted sugar snap peas. They’re a “snap” to make and just hit the spot when you’re craving something green. Creamy pea crostini are not at all difficult to make. Begin with toasted bread slices, called crostini.
