When I saw this viral trend on tikok, I knew I had to get involved. Something magical happens when you slow roast cherry tomatoes on a low heat. They get jucier, sweeter & softer with explosive flavour. It’s the perfect contrast to cut through the rich and creamy ricotta. Avocado toast may need to step aside, as this ricotta toast recipe takes the lead for best brunch recipe.
The best tomatoes to roast, in my opinion. They’re sweeter, more falvourful and perfect for the aesthetic of this ricotta toast recipe.
This is a brunch recipe that we have on special occasions, so don’t skip out on the full fat ricotta. We want the full creaminess and flavour that you would otherwise miss if you bought reduced-fat.
A fun switch from the obvious choice of basil. I love the way that fresh chives pair with many creamy dishes and it doesnt dissapoint with this ricotta toast recipe.
Arguably the most flavourful of the olive oil family, we are able to use extra-virgin olive oil in this recipe as we’re either using it served cold or cooked on a low heat, during the slow cooking of the cherry tomatoes.
I know sourdough is pretty boujie so I wouldn’t usually post a recipe about it, but this is a one-off where I think it’s needed. The texture and flavour is perfect as a foundation to this ricotta toast. The crunch that you achieve when sourdough is toasted cannot be replicated using any other bread, so treat yourself and buy sourdough for this one guys.
Chop the cherry tomatoes in halves and add to a large baking tray with a drizzle of olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper. Place in the oven for around 40 minutes.
After around 35 minutes, toast your sourdough and spread the ricotta onto the bread.
Once the tomatoes are ready, top with the beautiful slow roasted tomatoes and drizzle with any oily juices from the tray over the toast.
Garnish with some fresh chopped chives, flaky salt and an extra sprinkle of pepper.
