I don’t know what kind of magic I stumbled into yesterday but I found fresh blackberries at the grocery store for $1 per 1/2 pint. Obviously, I had to stock up and I found myself with heaps of blackberries in the kitchen. This is a lovely problem to have because I could eat a few pounds of blackberries on my own without a problem. But instead of just stuffing my cheeks full of berries, I decided to use them as a toast topping!

Tips for Blackberry Ricotta Toast

  • Do not make this toast in advance, or the bread will start to get soggy. It’s best served immediately.
  • I prefer whole milk ricotta because it’s extra creamy, but you can use part-skim ricotta if you prefer.
  • Add a sprinkle of sea salt to amplify the combination of flavors.

Substitution Ideas

  • If you wanted to make this vegan, I recommend using Kite Hill vegan ricotta cheese. The texture and flavor are pretty close to dairy-based ricotta! Be sure to use agave instead of honey, to keep it completely plant-based.
  • If you don’t have fresh basil, try it with fresh mint leaves instead!
  • No blackberries? No problem! This recipe is also delicious with strawberries or blueberries. I don’t recommend using frozen berries for this recipe.

What to do with Leftover Ricotta

If you have a little ricotta and you’re not sure what to do with it, try this whipped ricotta recipe! It makes a delicious sandwich spread or dip for veggies. It makes creamy ricotta light and fluffy, so it’s even more spreadable! You could also use whipped ricotta on toast.
