  • Yield: 2 1x


This toastie was born as a pizza recipe, but is now one of our favorites toasties. This green toastie is totally green and therefore doesn’t only taste delicious, but is also beautiful to look at! 



  • 4 slices of seeded multigrain bread
  • 125 grams of green peas (either fresh or cooked)
  • Handful of mint leaves
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • ½ a zucchini (cut in slices of ½ cm thick) 
  • 3x 1 dash of olive oil (separate)


  1. Drizzle some olive oil on a preheated sandwich grill. 
  2. Grill the zucchini until it is cooked, but still crispy (this should take about 3 minutes). Set aside.
  3. Make the pea-spread by combining the peas, olive oil, lemon juice, mint and garlic in a blender. 
  4. Blend until you have a chunky spread (or make it smoother by adding some more water and/or olive oil). Add salt if desired.
  5. Spread a thick layer of the pea spread on one slice of bread. 
  6. Place the zucchini on top (make sure there is not too much filling)
  7. If desired, place another layer of pea spread on the inside of the other slice of bread. 
  8. Drizzle some more olive oil on the grill. 
  9. Place the toastie in the center of the grill. 
  10. Ready in 3-5 minutes or when it is crispy!
