I’m just gonna say it - ricotta toast is the new avocado toast. We all love an avocado toast and know there are 50 ways to make it, but ricotta toast is just as versatile. You can make it savory with mushrooms and fresh herbs, or make it sweet with fruit and honey! An added bonus is that ricotta has more protein than avocado (8g protein in 1/4 cup of ricotta vs 1g protein in 1/4 cup avocado), so if you’re choosing to have just that for a snack or a meal then ricotta toast would be a little more balanced!
To be honest I’m just a toast girl in general but holy smokes this one is delicious.
