Whipped Ricotta Tomato Toast
We could eat Whipped Ricotta Tomato Toast made with fresh tomatoes on repeat this summer. It’s the best treat for breakfast, brunch, or a quick snack, especially during the high tomato season when the tomatoes are juicy, delicious, and so full of flavor. This is probably the easiest recipe on the blog; in fact, it’s so easy that at first, we didn’t even want to share it, but it would be sad to miss out on such a fantastic summer sandwich.

Essential ingredients

There are only a few ingredients needed, but they are absolutely essential.

Bread - use your favorite toast bread. It can be white, whole wheat, or sourdough. We like the ones with seeds in them too.

Ricotta - the magic component. It’s essential to whip the ricotta before adding the rest of the ingredients. The ricotta is creamy, light, perfectly salty, and slightly sweet. A good substitute would be cream cheese.

Garlic - adds that well-known fresh garlic acidity. It’s not overpowering, don’t worry.

Tomato - Use fresh tomatoes. Feel free to use sweet cherry tomatoes or large tomatoes.

Basil - adds freshness, lightness, and another layer of flavor.
