Ricotta is good in both sweet and savory recipes. Try some of my other recipes with ricotta: Ricotta Pound Cake, Baked Blackberry Ricotta Cheesecake, and Whipped Feta with Blistered Tomatoes.

For the ricotta, you can smear it on the bread as is or whip it to make it creamier.

How to Whip Ricotta?

Whipping ricotta makes it fluffy, light, and super creamy. Whole milk ricotta will be creamier and richer than skim ricotta when you’re whipping ricotta. It’s a simple process, simply add ricotta in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Toast bread

  • Use a toaster if you’re making just one or two toasts. Use the oven if you’re making more.
  • Use the oven, lay the slices on a large baking sheet in a 350°F oven for about 10 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  • Use the broiler. Turn on the broiler and toast the bread for just a few minutes on each side. Watch it closely so it doesn’t burn.
  • Use the air fryer. Turn on the Air Fryer and toast on one side for a couple of minutes until it’s as toasted as you want, flip the bread, and repeat.

Ricotta cheese has a creamy, soft texture and mild flavor therefore, it’s good in both sweet and savory dishes. It can be made from cow, goat or sheep milk whey. *You can get full-fat ricotta as well as low-fat and fat-free ricotta. Of course the nutrition profile of low-fat and fat-free ricotta will vary compared to full-fat ricotta. These are still rich in protein, calcium, selenium, and phosphorus.

It’s considered one of the healthiest cheese varieties. Ricotta contains all nine essential amino acids and is high in protein, calcium, selenium, and phosphorus, as well as several other important vitamins and minerals.

  • Ricotta. You can use your favorite ricotta whether it’s whole, reduced fat, or low fat ricotta.
  • Blackberries and blueberries. Wash and dry your fruit before adding to the toast.
  • Date syrup. I drizzled on maybe 1 teaspoon of date syrup to bump up the flavor.
  • Sprouts. I used Wild about sprouts. You can use any sprouts, microgreen, nuts, or seeds.
