Sweet Pea Ricotta Bruschetta

Directions

  1. Finely shred peel from lemon and juice lemon; set aside. In a medium saucepan, bring water to boiling. Add peas and sugar. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Cover; simmer for 2 to 4 minutes or until just tender. Drain. Transfer to a large bowl of ice water to cool. Drain well. Add peas, 2 tablespoons of the oil, the lemon juice, and mint to a food processor. Cover and process until smooth (mixture should be the consistency of hummus; add a little warm water, if needed). Season to taste with salt and pepper; set aside.
  2. In a small mixing bowl stir together lemon peel, ricotta, and goat cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Brush bread slices with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Toast in a grill pan or under the broiler, turning once. Rub each warm bread slice with cut side of garlic.
  4. To assemble, spread ricotta mixture over each slice of bread and top with pea mixture. If desired, garnish with radishes and pea shoots.

From the Test Kitchen
