Peas on Toast Recipe

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen peas
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 4 slices of sourdough bread
  • 1 lemon (zested and juiced)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

STEPS

  1. First, prepare the peas. If using fresh peas, blanch them in boiling water for 2-3 minutes until tender, then drain and cool. If using frozen peas, simply thaw them and blanch them in boiling water for 30 seconds. Drain the peas and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Toast the bread on a pan. Lightly brush the sourdough slices with olive oil and toast them until golden and crisp.
  3. In a bowl, combine the ricotta cheese with lemon zest, a pinch of salt, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Mix well until creamy.
  4. Its time to assemble! Spread a generous layer of the ricotta mixture onto each slice of toasted sourdough. Top with the prepared peas.
  5. Drizzle a bit more lemon juice over the top of the toast and add more lemon zest. Season to taste and ready to eat.

Enjoy this toast as a refreshing and nourishing start to your day or as a light, uplifting meal anytime.
