Step 1

Preheat broiler. In a small saucepan cook peas and edamame in boiling water about 10 minutes or until very tender; drain. Transfer to a food processor. Add lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Cover and process until smooth, stopping and scraping down sides as necessary. Transfer mixture to a small bowl.

In the same saucepan heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic; cook and stir about 1 minute or until tender. Stir garlic mixture and basil into pureed edamame mixture.

To assemble, spread toasted baguette slices with ricotta cheese. Arrange on a baking sheet. Broil about 4 inches from the heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until ricotta is warm. Sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Serve ricotta toasts with pureed edamame mixture.
