Picture of Green Pea and Pistachio Biscotti
After discovering the joys of using freeze-dried corn in baked goods, I had to give some other dehydrated veggies a shot as well.

Green peas and pistachios are a classic and truly outstanding combination, and light and crisp biscotti seemed like as good a vehicle as any to showcase them. Brilliant green and delicious, the outcome was even better than I could have hoped for. These delicious little snacks are lightly sweet and perfectly highlight the nutty, creaminess of pistachios alongside the fresh and sweet hints of peas.
