    makes 4 with pesto to spare

    for the pesto: 

    makes about 1 cup

    • 1 ½ cups packed pea shoots
    • ½ cup packed basil
    • 2 cloves garlic
    • 1/3 cup pine nuts
    • ½ cup olive oil
    • ½ cup parmesan
    • pinch of sea salt
    • a few grinds of freshly ground pepper

    everything else:

    • 2 pieces crusty bread, sliced about ½ inch thick
    • ½ cup ricotta
    • ½ lemon
    • olive oil
    • sea salt
    • freshly ground pepper


    1. Combine all the pesto ingredients except the olive oil in a food processor. Cover and pulse until combined. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil and pulse until smooth.

    2. Meanwhile, drizzle the bread slices with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet and under the broiler for about a minute or so on each side until lightly browned but not hard. Remove from oven and let cool.

    3. Place ricotta in a mixing bowl. Grate the zest of ½ a lemon into the ricotta and mix to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    4. Smear lemon ricotta over toast. Add pesto on top. Garnish with a drizzle of olive oil, sea salt, a sprinkle of lemon and a pea shoot.
