Peas! So delicious. My New Roots told me that peas are chock full of vitamins and minerals, which is really great because I secretly always liked them but avoided buying them cause I believed otherwise. Add that to the fact that I’m a big fan of open-face anything, and this simple dinner was born. Let’s call it… Peas on Toast with Other Good Stuff.
Semi-mash peas with a squeeze of lemon juice, pinch of salt, and pepper. Start soft-boiling an egg (6 minutes tops at a low boil). Take the ricotta and add good olive oil, salt, pepper, and caramelized shallots. Spread ricotta on nice toasty bread, top with some peas, prosciutto, greens, and egg.
I foresee this dish happening in many different variations for dinners to come! Let’s never stop, peas.
