How to make it

This vibrant and simple dish harmonizes the sweetness of fresh garden peas with the creamy tang of goat’s cheese, alongside thick and silky Lardo.

  • Blanch Peas: Bring a pot of salted water to a boil
  • Add peas and blanch for 2-3 minutes until just tender
  • Drain and set aside
  • Sauté Garlic: In a pan, heat olive oil over medium heat
  • Sauté minced garlic until fragrant but not browned
  • Combine Ingredients: Add blanched peas to the pan, tossing them with the garlic-infused oil
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Add Goat’s Cheese: Gently fold in the crumbled goat’s cheese, allowing it to melt slightly and coat the peas
  • Introduce Lardo: Place thinly sliced Lardo over the pea and cheese mixture
  • Let it warm through for a minute, enhancing the dish with its rich flavour
  • Serve: Transfer the peas, goat’s cheese, and Lardo mixture to a serving dish
  • Garnish with fresh mint leaves for a burst of freshness
