WHIPPED RICOTTA & MINT DIP
Author: Stacey Fischer
Serves: 7 servings – 1 serve = 2 tbsp
- 1 cup frozen peas
- ¼ cup olive oil
- ½ cup ricotta cheese
- Handful fresh mint
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- Crack of salt and pepper
- Add peas to boiling water for about 30 seconds so that they are just beginning to soften.
- Remove peas from stove and drain. Run cold water over the peas to cool quickly.
- Add peas, olive oil, ricotta, mint, lemon juice, salt and pepper to blender.
- Blend until smooth.
If you would like to make this more of dressing than a dip add more olive oil and lemon juice. This dressing works particularly well on roasted brinjal with toasted almonds. You could also use this a great spread on crackers and breads.
