Serves 1

You will need

Ricotta cheese 4 tbsp
Honey 1 tsp
Lemon 1, juice and zest
Fresh dill 1 bunch, roughly chopped

Fresh mint 1 bunch, roughly chopped
Extra virgin olive oil

  3. Add a tablespoon of olive oil into a small non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, then add the sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and miso paste. Stir and remove from the heat when the seeds begin to crackle.
