    Prep Time:
    Cook time:
    Servings: 15 tartines


    • olive oil: for drizzling
    • rustic bread slices: 15
    • zucchini, shaved into ribbons: 3 medium
    • lemon juice: 3 tablespoons
    • ricotta: 1 cup
    • petit peas: 3 tablespoons
    • fresh mint leaves: ¼ cup, loosely packed
    • pine nuts, toasted: ¼ cup
    • lemon zest, finely grated: 1 tablespoon
    • manchego cheese, shaved: ¼ cup
    • salt +pepper: to taste


    Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Arrange the bread slices on a parchment lined baking sheet. Drizzle tops with olive oil. Bake for about 5 minutes, or until lightly toasted.

    Step 2: Using a vegetable peeler shred zucchini into ribbons. In a medium bowl toss the zucchini ribbons with the lemon juice, and set aside.

    Step 3: Once the bread slices have cooled. Start assemblying the tartines: evenly spread ricotta evenly over all of the toasts. Place 2 zucchini ribbons on each piece of toast. Sprinkle tops with a few petit peas, mint leaves, and pine nuts. Season with a light drizzle of olive oil and freshly ground salt and pepper. Garnish with lemon zest and pieces of shaved manchego.
