ricotta toast

ricotta toast | my skinny sweet tooth

Last month, my husband and I planted our very first garden. Since we had absolutely no idea what we were doing, we started with the things we enjoy the most: tomatoes, zucchini, cucumber, banana peppers, strawberries, and even rhubarb. I also have a tiny herb garden where there is lavender, rosemary, thyme, and basil. Gosh, it smells heavenly. Just this past week, my basil had doubled!

I began searching online to find ways to use it up as quickly as I can. I came across many recipes with basil being paired with strawberries … and now I know why. I love infusing my water with this dynamic duo. But what’s even better? Having it for breakfast.

I just want to say that this isn’t your average morning toast. It isn’t even your average ricotta toast. I’ve had many versions, but this one has to be hands-down my favorite. Why? The addition of lemon zest. It’s responsible for bringing this to a whole other level …like, cloud 9 level. Ahh, so good.

    Looks delicious but is it filling?? I need my breakfasts to fill me up and for 6 points, I may stick to oatmeal or eggs. But it sure has my mouth watering!!

    Why did your basil double? I must not be pruning mine right because mine is not growing like that. Yours looks gorgeous, btw.
