Pea Shoot Crostini
drinks ease some of that discomfort quite nicely. People need something to do with their hands and mouths, you know? It's just human nature.
At the same time, you don't need any more to worry about, so your food and cocktails should be pretty effortless. Food that you don't need silverware for is always a good idea.
PEA SHOOT CROSTINI
1/2 c. ricotta
salt & pepper
1 green onion, chopped
1 Tbsp. fresh mint, chopped
zest of 1 lemon
1. Cut the baguette into 1" slices. Brush with olive oil. Bake at 400˚ until golden brown (watch closely!). Cook both sides.
2. Mix together ricotta, salt, pepper, green onion, mint and lemon zest.
3. Top each slice of toast with a little of the ricotta mixture, drizzle with olive oil, add a squeeze of lemon juice over the top. Add pea shoots to the top.
