Method

  1. Put the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat and cook, swirling the pan regularly, until it turns a nutty golden brown (about 8 minutes). Remove the leaves from the radishes (if they have them) and reserve. Cut any large radishes in half, then add them all to the butter and cook gently over a low-medium heat for about 8 minutes, adding the pine nuts halfway through, until soft and golden.
  2. Meanwhile, toast the sourdough. Cut the garlic in half and rub the cut side of each piece across a slice of toasted sourdough. Stir the lemon zest and juice into the ricotta and season with salt and pepper. Chop the radish leaves and add these to the pan of radishes, off the heat, with a pinch of salt.
  3. Spread the ricotta over the toasted sourdough, then spoon over the radishes with plenty of the buttery juices.

  1. Don’t waste it If you don’t want to add all the radish leaves, give them a rinse and keep in an airtight container in the fridge. They’re a great addition to a salad – or you can shred them and use like soft herbs.
