Ricotta Toast

When I was a child I was a bundle of raw energy. How many times didn’t I hear my mother say, “Ella, sit, eat!”
“Can’t mom, I have volleyball practice, going to the beach, working today.”
I’d grab a piece of toast and run out the door.

It wasn’t too much later my mother, like mothers so often do, outsmarted me and started loading my toast with healthy goodness. One of those creations was ricotta toast. I had forgotten all about ricotta toast until recently when I was running out the door with a piece of toast in my hand.

Ricotta toast, like avocado toast, can be topped with just about anything. Spread some ricotta on a slice of country-style toast, or some other rustic bread and top with whatever comes to mind.

Here are a few of my favorites:

MANGO AND HONEY:
Spread toast with ricotta. Top with chopped mango and cashews. Drizzle with honey. I like to use sage honey.

Then there were the savory delights.

RADISH AND SPROUTS:
Do you like radishes? Then try this savory treat. Mix in some salt, pepper, and a hint of dill seed into ricotta cheese.
