Chickpeas with Burrata and Pesto

I made Smitten Kitchen’s dried chickpeas recipe and liked the approach, but adapted for the pressure cooker. I also borrowed a page from her pairing suggestions, though I subbed ramp pesto for the salsa verde.

Shrimp and Vegetable Tempura/Tempura Udon

One of my favorite things to order at a Japanese restaurant.
