1
Start by toasting the pine nuts for the courgette flowers. Place the pine nuts in a dry, hot pan and heat until they start to pop. Remove from the heat and set aside
2
Place the sultanas in a pan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and then turn off the heat. Leave the sultanas to soak in the pan for 10 minutes before straining
  • 40g of sultanas
3
Combine the diced courgette and ricotta in a bowl and then add the soaked sultanas and pine nuts
4
Add the basil and squeeze lemon juice into the bowl to taste. Season to taste
5
To prepare the courgette flowers, gently remove the stamen from inside and cut the tip off the opposite end. Scoop the mixture into a piping bag and then pipe into both of the courgette flowers. Set aside
  • 2 courgette flowers
6
For the vinaigrette, combine the mustard, salt and pepper in a bowl. Gradually whisk in the oils in a slow, steady stream until emulsified. Adjust seasoning again and if not sweet enough balance with sugar
7
Dress the diced tomato, sultanas, pine nuts, peas in the vinaigrette
8
In a separate bowl, combine the sherry vinegar and tomato purée. Season with salt and pepper and set aside

Clean and prepare the baby artichoke. Place in a pan and cover with water, add the lemon juice, and salt. Slowly bring to the boil for 3 minutes, remove from the heat and allow to cool in the liquid before cutting into quarters

Add a little oil to a frying pan placed over a medium-high heat. Add the sliced artichokes into the pan and fry until golden brown all over
  • 65ml of olive oil

Bring a pot of water to the boil. For the baby beetroot, clean off the stems leaving 1cm for presentation purposes. Blanch the beetroots. Allow to cool slightly before carefully peeling with a small knife and cutting into quarters
12
Dress the beetroots and artichokes in the vinaigrette
13
Place the courgette flowers in an oven set to 200°C/gas mark 5 and cook for 6 minutes or until the courgette flowers are starting to soften
