Whipped Ricotta Crostini
1 French baguette, sliced into ½ inch pieces
1 teaspoon olive oil plus more for brushing
¾ cup whole milk ricotta
1 teaspoon honey
3 tablespoon fresh herbs (such as rosemary and thyme)
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 small garlic clove
Big pinch salt
Pinch black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the baguette slices on a baking tray and brush each side with olive oil. Bake in the oven for 7-10 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Add the ricotta, honey, herbs, lemon juice, garlic, salt and black pepper to a food processor and blend until light and fluffy and whipped, about 1 minute. Once cooled, spoon the whipped ricotta onto the baguette slices and top with fruits, vegetables or herbs of your choice.
