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!!

To serve, toast the bread and spread toast with ricotta. Top ricotta with caramelized figs and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and flaky sea salt.

Chef’s Note: If you can’t find fresh figs, dried will work but they will be a bit chewier. Caramelize them for a few minutes longer than with fresh figs.
