Toasted bread with whipped ricotta and a hint of blue cheese topped with sliced persimmons, pumpkin seeds, fresh thyme & honey. The perfect snack that is crunchy yet creamy with a hint of blue cheese and sweetness.
There are so many wonderful elements here combined into a delicious bite. Working from home can be challenging especially with your kitchen right around the corner and a fully stocked pantry that’s filled with all kinds of snack. I find you either gravitate towards a routine, always making the same meals or snacks, or you simply cant find the time to eat properly during the day and consume all your calories at dinner time.
This snack is so simple to make, it comes together in under 5 minutes and easily customizable. The vibrant orange persimmons placed over a pillowy blanket of whipped ricotta with a hint of blue cheese is so pleasant and mouth watering. We love coming up recipes that are seasonal, get our of your comfort zone and try something new, use the produce that’s in season to try new things. The sweetness and richness of the persimmons and ricotta with fresh thyme, honey and a hint of blue cheese really make for a delightful snack.
For this snack, make sure the persimmons are ripe and chose the Fuyu variety which are more versatile and edible even if they haven’t fully ripened. Grab a handful the next time your at the store and add these to your salads or cheese boards. If you cant find persimmons or they are no longer in season, pears also work for this recipe, peaches or plums.
We hope you enjoyed our easy snack recipe!
