2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the vegetables

Heat the oven to 400ºF.
  • Cut the leeks in half, lengthwise, then into ¼-inch half-moons and rinse.
  • Strip the chard leaves from their stems; then coarsely chop the leaves and stems, keeping the leaves separate from the stems.
  • Zest and juice the lemon.


Cook the chard; make the white-bean spread

In a pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the leeks and chard stems, season with salt and cook until tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the chard leaves and cook until starting to wilt, 2 to 3 minutes.
In a bowl, using a fork or vegetable masher, mash the beans to a thick paste. Stir in the ricotta, lemon zest, and season with salt and pepper.


Make the flatbreads

On a sheet pan, place the flatbreads side by side. Spread the mashed beans and ricotta evenly over the flatbreads to about an inch from the edge. Top with the chard and leeks. Bake until the flatbreads are crisp and the beans and ricotta are heated through, 15 to 18 minutes.
While the flatbreads bake, make the salad and vinaigrette.


Make the salad and the vinaigrette

  • Peel the carrot. Discard the outer skin, then peel the entire carrot into ribbons.
In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon lemon juice with 1 tablespoon oil and season with salt and pepper. In a mixing bowl, toss the carrots and arugula with as much of the vinaigrette as you like.


Transfer the flatbreads to individual plates and top with the salad and the shaved parmesan.
