Sourdough Flatbreads with Pea and Mint Ricotta Smash

Serves: 1

Ready in: Under 15 Mins

Looking for a snack or starter recipe that looks impressive and tastes delicious? This pea and mint ricotta smash from chef and food writer Claire Thomson (who's working with sourdough cracker and crispbread brand Peter’s Yard) is sure to go down well. “A doddle to make, blitzed peas with ricotta and lemon with plenty of fresh mint to invigorate," she says. "Add some parmesan to the mix to whizz and keep some back to shower the dip before serving with a slick of good olive oil and more chopped mint.”
