Fig, Ricotta and Honey drizzle on Toast

I’ve finally moved in Paris after this incredibly long summer and I must say I’m pretty happy. Living close to the Seine means I get to see the beautiful Louvres and Parisian bridges in my evening walks home. However, I haven’t just been enjoying evenings here: mornings are great too, and we all know why… breakfast! To all my foodie friends out there, let’s all agree than there’s no better way to start the day than with food so naturally, breakfast holds a very dear place in all our hearts.

It’s fig season at the moment, and I bought so many figs at the market the other day, I thought I should find ways to incorporate them in all my meals, for breakfast: I’m making figs and whipped ricotta on toast with a drizzle of honey.

Such a delicious breakfast and to be honest: nothing about it should make you feel guilty.

For one serving, you will need:

-2 large slices or 3 smaller slices of sourdough bread (or your favourite bread really)

-1.5 tbsp ricotta

-3 figs

-your favourite honey

-a pinch of salt to bring out the flavours

 

I mean, this is barely a recipe…
Put your ricotta in a bowl and whip it with a small whisk until it has a whipped cream consistency.
Toast your bread.
Slice your figs.
Spread the ricotta on the bread (be generous!) and layer the figs on top.
Drizzle with a bit of honey and sprinkle with salt.

Voilà!

 

It’s a great way to use up leftover ricotta that you may have bought for some Italian dish, and obviously, one of my new favourite ways to enjoy figs.

 

Lunch variation:

Add some salt and pepper to the ricotta. On top of the honey sprinkle the toasts with fresh thyme, and serve with a rocket salad ;)
