About Us

Easy Whipped Ricotta Toast with basil arugula pesto, oven roasted tomatoes finished with chives and freshly cracked black pepper. Grilled rye bread and creamy whipped ricotta cheese blended with fresh pesto served up with roasted tomatoes. This is the simplest lunch of brunch yet so amazingly GOOD that’s quick and easy to make. 

With the warmer days ahead, sometimes you just want something light that quick and easy to throw together for a satisfying lunch or brunch, something that’s not to heavy and of course totally delicious! 

This whipped ricotta toast will certainly satisfy your hunger and can be thrown together in a few minutes. 

 

Of course you can simply whip up ricotta for this dish without the pesto but we wanted to add that kick of fresh herbs to this recipe. You can add store bought pesto.. no shame there or make a simple batch of basil arugula pesto and add a few tablespoons to the food processor and whip it with the ricotta and the result is this beautiful pillow like soft whipped ricotta that’s bright green and smells amazing from the freshness of the pesto. 

 

 

As for the tomatoes, we kept things very simple and roasted them in the oven and simply drizzle some olive oil and sprinkles salt and pepper and roasted until they blistered. 

To finish our toast we garnished them with fresh chopped chives and some fresh cracked black pepper. 

 

 

Simple quick and easy lunch!
