End-of-Summer Ricotta Peach Toast

End-of-Summer Ricotta Peach Toast

Enjoy the final days of summer peaches with this quick and easy Ricotta Peach Toast – yes finally another toast-related post 😉

Having small amounts of leftover ingredients is one of my pet-peeves. Yes, I know if I were to go online I could find countless of food hacks for using up the last bits of tomato paste (apparently freezing it into individual packets is the way to go, but I have yet to remember to try it before the leftover paste goes bad), coconut milk, fresh herbs, or cucumbers (when snack time comes around cucumber slices never sound as good as a cup of cereal). So instead, I end up just throwing it all away 🙁 


Ricotta cheese is another food I commonly have an awkward surplus amount of. But then it occurred to me, ricotta doesn’t have to mean Italian food. In fact, it makes for a perfect snack or light breakfast.


Similar to the idea behind my Peach Caprese Salad, this toast combines the sweetness of ripe peach slices with the slight saltiness of whole milk ricotta cheese for a mouth-watering meal that is so quick and easy to make. For a little more indulgence, I added a drizzle of honey over the top, but if you want to get extra fancy, this would taste even better by stirring vanilla extract and cinnamon into the ricotta first!

So, before the warm weather goes away, taking with it bright, juicy peaches, treat yourself to a slice (or two) of ricotta peach toast!
