Caramelized Fig and Ricotta Toasts


Fresh figs on fresh ricotta on fresh bread…ahh, the joy! I know it’s hard to find fresh figs, and when they come around, I love to include them in every recipe I can (by the way, my new Black Mission fig tree is going to be planted in February! So excited!).

Caramelized Fig & Ricotta Toasts

The figs get a simple caramelization of brown sugar and a splash of balsamic vinegar. They are topped over ricotta cheese that’s slathered on toasted whole grain bread. Sprinkle a few pomegranate seeds for crunch and you are done.

It’s pretty, it’s easy and it’s definitely delicious!!
