1 sourdough boule, sliced into 1-inch crostini

1 clove garlic

8 ounces pea shoots (3 loosely packed cups), finely chopped

1/4 cup olive oil

Kosher salt

1/2 lemon

10 radishes, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat the broiler.
  2. Lay out the crostini on a sheet tray and toast under the broiler quickly. Once toasted, rub the bread with the garlic clove.
  3. Add the pea shoots to a mixing bowl with the olive oil and a generous amount of salt. Squeeze the juice from the lemon half over the pea shoots and mix well with a wooden spoon. Spread the pea shoot mixture over the crostini and fan the radishes over the top. 

Cook’s Note

Adding some anchovies--either salted or otherwise preserved--over the top of these makes the dish pretty much a meal.
