Goat Cheese Green Pea Blini Appetizer Recipe Instructions

Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cups frozen green peas
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 medium egg yolk
  • ½ cup milk
  • 4 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 4 tbsp. butter, melted + 1 tbsp. to coat pancake maker
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • ½ lb. cherry tomatoes, sliced thinly
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced thinly
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 tbsp. honey
  • 7 oz. firm goat cheese, cubed
  • 5.3 oz. button mushrooms
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 2 tbsp. chopped chives

Directions

  1. Boil the peas in water (just about covered with water) with ¼ tsp. salt, until they’re al dente (3-4 minutes). Immediately cool under cold water – this will preserve the color.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, place the peas, egg and eggs yolk, milk, flour and melted butter, and process until the batter is smooth and consistent.
  3. Cover with film and leave in in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
  4. Heat up a griddle or non-stick pan, and melt 1 tbsp. butter to coat. In the center of the griddle, pour about ¼ cup of batter, using a large spoon. If it doesn’t form a circular shape, you can shape it with the back of a spoon.
  5. Cook until the blini is golden on one side, then flip. Cook the other side until golden and remove from griddle with a large spatula. Make 12 pancakes in total and reserve.
  6. Preheat the oven at 375 F.
  7. On a roasting pan, place the cherry tomatoes and the garlic, and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and honey. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and reserve.
  8. Dice the mushrooms and sauté in a large pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper; add the lemon juice and chives and mix.
  9. Spray some non-stick spray to a baking sheet, and place four blini – at least 1 inch apart from each other. Cover each blini with the mushroom filling, then top with a second blini. Add some of the roasted tomatoes and goat cheese mix and top with third blini.
  10. Warm in the oven for about 5-8 minutes, until goat cheese is warm and soft (not melted). Serve warm and garnish with some sprigs of basil or sage.
