Ricotta Fig Toast

figtoast2

Trader Joe’s was sampling the most beautiful figs the other day, I just had to buy a package. I figured I’d buy them and figure out what to do with them once I got home.

My friend, Azita, was the first person to introduce me to fresh figs. When she first asked me to try one, I didn’t think I’d like it. Well, I was certainly wrong! Azita also introduced me to pomegranates and dates. She’s introduced me to all the things I didn’t think I’d ever want to try. Thank you, Azi! I love them all.

I decided I would make ricotta fig toast. This could be a simple afternoon snack, or a lovely lunch served with a simple arugula salad. I’m even thinking about making these in crostini size as an appetizer for my Dinner Club next month, or for Thursday night book club, which I will also be hosting in September.

This was so easy to throw together. I toasted a slice of sourdough bread and spread it with a couple tablespoons of part-skim ricotta cheese. I then drizzled a small amount of honey over the ricotta before placing my figs and pistachios on top. To finish my toast, I sprinkled a pinch of sea salt over everything.

Ingredients (for 1 toast)

  • 1 slice sourdough bread, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 2-3 figs, cut in quarters
  • 5 pistachios, shelled
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • pinch of sea salt

Directions

  1. Toast bread.
  2. Spread toast with ricotta.
  3. Drizzle honey over cheese.
  4. Place figs and pistachios on top.
  5. Season with sea salt.

Enjoy!

Until next time, Kris
