Method

Step 1

In a medium-sized saucepan, heat the rhubarb, 1 ½ cups of strawberries and thyme sprigs over medium heat until they start to bubble and get syrupy.


Step 2

Once they start to soften, remove the residual sprig and mash the fruit gently with a potato masher to a jammy, loose texture with some visible bits in it.


Step 3

Add the lemon juice and honey to taste and transfer to a fridge-friendly container.


Step 4

Mix in the chia seeds and allow to set in the fridge for at least two hours or overnight.


Step 5

When ready to serve, add about 3 tbsp of ricotta to each piece of toast and top with a generous dollop of the chia jam.


Step 6

Finish with the residual sliced strawberries and garnish with honey and thyme leaves, to taste, and a sprinkle of crushed pistachios.
