Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 2-3


  • 2 cups fresh or frozen peas
  • 2 cups fresh arugula
  • Juice of 1 lemon, divided
  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • ¼ tsp of sea salt and ground black pepper, divided
  • 2 Tbsp plain yogurt
  • 1 small garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh chives, finely chopped
  • 2 leaves fresh mint, thinly sliced
  • 2 leaves fresh basil, thinly sliced
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 slices of ACE Bakery® Sliced Sourdough Miche
  • 2 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 3 Tbsp, crumbled feta


  1. Bring a medium saucepan of water to boil. Once water has reached a boil, add peas and cook for 3-5 minutes or until soft with a slight crunch, but still vibrant in colour.
  2. While peas are cooking: in a medium mixing bowl, toss arugula with a squeeze of lemon, 1 tsp of olive oil and a pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Set aside.
  3. Drain peas and add to a food processor, along with yogurt, remaining lemon juice, garlic, chives, mint, basil, lemon zest, as well as a pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Pulse for 10-15 seconds or until slightly smooth with some texture from the peas. Set aside.
  4. Place 2 slices of the ACE Bakery® Sliced Sourdough Miche on a lined baking sheet and drizzle with remaining olive oil. Transfer to the oven to broil on high for 6-8 minutes or until lightly golden and toasted. To assemble, spread on ½ cup of the mashed peas, layer on a handful of dressed arugula, as well as some sliced radishes and crumbled feta.
