Pea Shoot Pesto with Lemon Ricotta on Toast

Pea Shoot Pesto with Lemon Ricotta on Toast

Before garden peas are fully formed, these wonderful leaves or shoots can be plucked from the plant in early spring.

Serve this dish with a slice of crusty bread or, even better, with our Pea Shoot Pesto Toast (see recipe above) for a delicious and light spring breakfast, brunch or lunch.
