This vegetarian side dish of charred courgettes and runner beans sings summer and also has a small bite of hot chilli. It goes down well at barbecues

Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Toast the seeds in a dry pan until they start to pop, then stir in the honey, chilli and a good pinch of sea salt. Once all the seeds are sticky and forming clusters, tip out onto a piece of baking parchment and leave to cool. Mix the lemon zest and some seasoning into the ricotta and set aside.

  • STEP 2

    Toss the courgettes and runner beans in the oil, then season. Fire up the barbecue or get a griddle pan searing hot on the hob. Working in batches, cook the veg until charred and softened but still a little crunchy.

  • STEP 3

    Spread the ricotta along the bottom of a large sharing platter and top with the veg. Squeeze over the lemon juice, then scatter over the honeyed seeds. Finish with a drizzle of olive oil and a scattering of sea salt, then dot with edible flowers for extra wow factor, if you like.
