Summer Whipped Ricotta Toast Two Ways
Prep time
Total time
Calling this a recipe is nearly fraud - just take the tastiest farmer's market finds you can get your hands on, mound 'em up over a thick slab of crisped toast towering with whipped ricotta and finish everything with a drizzle of something sweet, salty or herbacious. It's tough to get wrong. :)
Makes: about 6 servings
  • For the Toast
  • 6-8 slices rustic whole grain bread (or as much as you desire!)
  • 15 oz whole milk ricotta
  • olive oil
  • For the Savory Toppings
  • couple handfuls cherry tomatoes, halved
  • basil oil (recipe follows)
  • flaked sea salt
  • For the Sweet Toppings
  • sliced stone fruit, such as plums or nectarines
  • blueberries
  • honey (raw/local, if possible!)
  • freshly cracked black pepper
  1. Drizzle sliced bread liberally with olive oil and broil until golden brown.
  2. Meanwhile, turn ricotta out into a large bowl and beat with a hand mixer until slightly more voluminous and very creamy, about 2 mins.
  3. Spread toast with whipped ricotta and adorn with toppings of choice. Enjoy!
