You guys remember Veggie Tales, right? Did you know the episodes are streaming on Netflix? In fact, as I type this, Adrienne and I are watching one about Easter. There are two dancing peas accompanying a singing asparagus.
Actually, Adrienne isn’t watching at all. Just me. She likes the two-minute intro (can you blame her?!) and then she loses interest and goes speeding away to go pester the dog or pull things off shelves. That’s her thing.
I guess that means that singing asparagus is my thing.
I really wish the peas in this avocado mash would sing and dance, too. I’d probably sing along (like I may or may not be doing right now). I think a lot more babies would like peas if that were the case.
Fortunately, we don’t have a problem liking peas over here. Especially when they are drowned in avocado. And served up on the best bread you’ve ever eaten.
Smashed Pea and Avocado Toast
makes 4 slices
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1/2 c peas
- 2 T plain Greek yogurt*
- 4 slices of bread, toasted
- flat leaf parsley for garnish
- salt and pepper
The first step of this recipe is to bake a loaf of bread and not eat the whole thing. Trust me, that is by far the hardest part of the process. If you make it past that step…you’re golden. Then, toast whatever you managed not to eat.
Then, mash the avocado, add the peas and yogurt and mash again. Season with salt and pepper. When your bread is toasted, smear each slice with that delicious green mash and top with parsley.
*Better Whey Of Life sent me the Greek yogurt as a sample to review on my blog. It was delicious on it’s own AND in this recipe!
Only the real vegetables hold her attention. I guess that’s a good thing.
