Chive Flower and Spring Pea Tartines

Among my many farmer’s market purchases this week were fresh chives, with lovely lilac blooms.

Chive flowers are edible, great in stir fries and salads. However, they have a strong onion flavor,  so you don’t want to pop a whole bloom in your mouth.

I also purchased some fresh, crisp spring peas. The combination of peas and chives- perfect for a tartine. Tartines are the open faced sandwiches I have shared with you in the past (Ricotta Cheese and Cherry Tomato &  Roasted Red Pepper Hummus with Avocado)

The recipe took one trip to the Farmer’s Market + 5 minutes prep time. Easy and yummy, give them a try!
