Slathering anything on toast is fully on-trend right now, which is a-okay by me. It’s easy, delicious, and often really easy to make vegetarian (and vegan, with avocado!). This easy ricotta breakfast toast is covered in creamy ricotta blended with lavender and almond and vanilla extract, and topped with toasted almonds and honey. Feel free to swap in whatever nuts or toppings you prefer, though. The toast is your oyster, if that makes any sense at all.
If you’ve been around here before, you probably already know that I LOVE ricotta cheese. It’s versatility is addicting and I end up trying to think of ways to include it in recipes. Here are a few ricotta recipes that are in solid rotation:
- Espresso ricotta chocolate mousse
- Pumpkin butter ricotta spread
- Veggie ricotta frittata
- Blueberry almond ricotta bake
It’s funny that a lot of blogs call this breakfast toast. It’s totally true, but I’m always tempted to eat this for pretty much any meal. It’s sweet-ish, so it feels like a dessert cheat no matter when I eat it.
You can also totally not blend the ricotta, but it does make it super creamy and easy to blend with the flavorings. Feel free to mix it all up in a bowl instead, to make it even easier.
