Ricotta and Sweet Pea Toasts


We could all use a vibrant dose of green during the cold months. Thankfully, frozen green peas are available year-round. Blend with creamy ricotta and mint for a quick spread on toasted baguette slices. Double the mixture to spread on sandwiches or your morning toast, or use as a dip for whole-grain crackers.
