Shoot the cook loves breakfast and yesterday’s treat was this Ricotta Toast with orange and grapefruit. As you can see we take breakfast seriously here and want you to take it seriously too. I was waking up very early to take photos before going to work, but at the moment it’s quite difficult because the sun rises quite late, I may have to start using artificial light again 🙁
I’m truly in love with this hearty and colourful toast. This ricotta toast with orange and grapefruit will make you jump out of bed. You will start the day happy and energetic! Grapefruits and oranges are in season now and ricotta or cream cheese are always in supermarkets so it won’t be any hassle getting ingredients to make this toast.
What is exciting about this toast? We are roasting grapefruit and oranges in the oven, yes, ROASTING.
By roasting a bit the fruit, it softens then and they lose their bitter taste. Keep the roasted fruits refrigerated until you assemble your toast, I usually keep them in the fridge for a couple of days. My final touch is a honey drizzle to give it a sweet taste…mmm.
So why not add this Ricotta toast with roasted fruit to your list of healthy breakfasts, it provides you with energy, vitamin c and fibre. Other toast that I usually make with ricotta is this Ricotta Toast with Grapes.
How did it turn out for you? Leave your comments and any ideas below. I look forward to seeing your pictures on Instagram with the hasgtag #shoothecook! See you soon.
- 1 pomegranate, peeled and sliced
- 1 orange (sub. for a couple of mandarins), peeled and sliced
- 2 wholegrain bread slices
- 180g ricotta cheese (substitute for cream cheese)
- honey or maple syrup for garnishing
- Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC and line a roasting tray with parchment paper
- Peel and cut the fruit in slices, about 5mm thick. Place them on the tray and roast for 20' at 180º or until the edges start to brown.
- Take them out of the oven and leave to cool.
- Toast the bread, then spread the ricotta cheese on them and add a couple of slices of roasted grapefruit and orange. Drizzle with honey to taste and enjoy!
- *You can use your favourite cheese, it tastes delicious with some semi-hard cheese, although it's is a bit more fattening but it works well as an entrée.
