Ingredients
  • 2/3  cup  frozen peas
  • 1/2  cup  frozen shelled sweet soybeans (edamame)
  • 3  tablespoons  lemon juice
  • 1/2  teaspoon  kosher salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 1  tablespoon  olive oil
  • 6  cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1/3  cup  snipped fresh basil or mint
  • 24 1/4 - 1/2 inches  whole grain baguette-style French bread slices, toasted
  • 1/2  cup  part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1/8  teaspoon  kosher salt
  • 1/8  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
Directions

1. Preheat broiler. In a small saucepan cook peas and edamame in boiling water about 10 minutes or until very tender; drain. Transfer to a food processor. Add lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Cover and process until smooth, stopping and scraping down sides as necessary. Transfer mixture to a small bowl.

2. In the same saucepan heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic; cook and stir about 1 minute or until tender. Stir garlic mixture and basil into pureed edamame mixture.

3. To assemble, spread toasted baguette slices with ricotta cheese. Arrange on a baking sheet. Broil about 4 inches from the heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until ricotta is warm. Sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Serve ricotta toasts with pureed edamame mixture.
