How to make whipped ricotta

  2. Turn on the food processor and blend for about 30 seconds until the ricotta is smooth and creamy.
  3. Scrape down the bowl, then put the lid back on.
  4. Turn the food processor on again and drizzle in the olive oil.
  5. Continue to blend until olive oil is fully incorporated.

How to make roasted strawberries

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Wash and dry the strawberries.
  3. Remove the leaves and stems.
  4. Slice strawberries in half.
  5. Arrange strawberries cut side down on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Pop them in the oven for about 25 minutes, until juicy and very tender.

Once the whipped ricotta and roasted strawberries are prepared, you can assemble your toast! Top slices of toast with a heaping dollop of the whipped ricotta and spread it out. Add a generous scoop of the roasted strawberries. Garnish with a drizzle of honey and fresh mint leaves (if using them). Voila!

Can I prepare this recipe in advance?

You can absolutely prep the roasted strawberries and whipped ricotta up to three days in advance of serving! Store them separately in airtight containers in the fridge.

When ready to serve, give the whipped ricotta a good serve and heat the strawberries in the microwave until warm. Toast your bread and add the toppings!

How else can I use roasted strawberries?

If you happen to have leftover roasted strawberries, you can add them to yogurt bowls, oatmeal (either stovetop oats or overnight oats), or smoothies. You could also blend them into a salad dressing to make a strawberry balsamic dressing.
