Whipped Ricotta With Figs, Pistachio & Honey Toasts
“For these toasts, you can substitute walnut pieces for the toasted pistachios — just toast the nuts or candy them in honey in a frying pan,” says food personality Trish Magwood. “If your balsamic vinegar is aged and thick (from Modena is best), there’s no need to reduce.”
Yield: Makes 8 toasts
- In small bowl, using fork, combine ricotta, lemon zest and juice, thyme, salt and pepper. Set aside.
- In frying pan, toast nuts until fragrant.
- Spread cheese mixture on Simple Toasts. Layer on figs, then nuts and drizzle with honey.
- In small saucepan, boil balsamic vinegar for a few minutes to reduce and thicken. Drizzle over top.
