Method

 
Drain the peas and cool in ice water to retain the colour.

Spread on toasted ciabatta and finish off with parmesan shavings, a drizzle of oil and some crushed black pepper.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
