Here, creamy ricotta is smeared luxuriously onto whole grain toast, then topped with sliced peaches, pistachios, a drizzle of honey, fresh thyme leaves and a finishing sprinkle of sea salt. These ricotta toasts make for an excellent nourishing, sweet-savory breakfast or snack.
Ricotta Toasts With Peaches and Pistachios
In a small dry skillet over medium-high heat, toast the pistachios, tossing frequently, until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Transfer the nuts to a cutting board to cool, then finely chop.
Toast the bread. Spread about 3 tablespoons of the ricotta over each piece, then arrange 3 to 4 peach slices on top of each toast. Drizzle each with 1/2 teaspoon of honey, then sprinkle each with about 2 teaspoons of the pistachios, 1/4 teaspoon of the thyme and a sprinkle of salt. Cut each toast in half and serve right away.
