Fresh, spring split pea crostini topped with hardboiled egg wedges and a fresh radish relish.



    1. In a medium pot, combine split green peas with 2 cups water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for 30 to 40 minutes, until peas begin to fall apart. Add more water as needed to finish cooking.

    2. In a food processor, combine cooked split peas with lemon juice, olive oil, garlic powder, salt and smoked paprika. Puree until mixture is smooth, adding a tablespoon or two of water as needed.

    3. While split peas are cooking, make the radish relish. In a small bowl, combine radishes and scallions.

    4. Add olive oil, lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Toss to coat the radish and set aside.

    5. Turn on the broiler for your oven. Place baguette slices on a sheet tray and brush with olive oil. Place under the broiler and cook for 60 to 90 seconds, until lightly brown. Keep a close eye on the baguette slices.

    6. To assemble, spread a tablespoon or two of the pea mixture on each baguette slice. Top with a quarter of the hardboiled egg, a spoonful of the radish mixture and a sprinkle of parsley to finish.
