- Preheat grill. Slice garlic clove in half and rub the bread slices with garlic to infuse with garlic flavor. Drizzle the bread pieces with some extra virgin olive oil, reserving some oil for the pea topping.
- In a bowl, combine the remaining olive oil, peas, lemon juice, lemon zest, chili flakes, and mint. Season the pea mixture to taste with kosher salt and cracked black pepper. The mixture should be very acidic and seasoned well.
- Grill the two bread pieces to lightly char both sides. While warm, spread the ricotta cheese on both pieces of bread. Cut the slices in half to create four pieces of bruschetta. Using the ricotta to anchor the peas, mound the mixture onto the bread.
- Place the assembled bruschetta onto a plate and drizzle once again with extra virgin olive oil and perhaps a mint sprig.
