A savory peas cheesecake is an intriguing and unique dish that combines the creamy richness of cheesecake with the fresh flavor of peas. Here's a recipe to try:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 17.6 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 2/5 cups half & half cream
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 garlic (minced)
  • 3 gelatin sheets
  • parsley
  • olive oil extra virgin
  • salt and pepper
  1. Put the gelatin in icy water for 10 minutes.

    • Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat.
    • Stir in garlic and cook for about 2-3 minutes.
    • Add frozen peas, stir, and season with salt and pepper.
    • Cover the pan and cook until the peas are tender, for about 5 minutes.
    • Pour over the cooked peas together with the half & half cream and emulsify everything with an immersion mixer.
    • Mix ricotta and cream cheese in a bowl until they become a smooth cream; then, add the emulsified pea cream and mix very well.
    • Squeeze the gelatin with your hands and dissolve it in a pan at low flame. Filter it and put it into the soft cream and stir until it is incorporated.
  2. Crust
    • Combine Thin Wheat Baked Crackers crumbs with melted butter, press onto the bottom of a 24 cm (9 inches) springform pan, and store in the fridge until the filling is ready.
  3. Assembling
    • Pour the filling into the crust; smooth the top with a rubber spatula.
    • Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until firm, 3-4 hours.
    • Unclasp the sides of the pan, remove the cheesecake, and decorate as desired.
