Spoon this crowd-pleasing spread onto toasted baguette rounds to get the party started. This is a great spring appetizer but the pea puree isn't just for crostini. It's an equally good accompaniment to a rich bisque or thinned with olive oil and used as a warm pesto-style topping for pasta.
I use frozen peas for the convenience but if you want to get busy shelling fresh peas, go for it! —Stephanie
