Whipped Ricotta Spring Citrus Toast

Whipped Ricotta Spring Citrus Toast


• ½ cup honey
• 8 sprigs fresh thyme
• 1 (15-oz) container whole milk ricotta cheese
• 2–3 tablespoons of the thyme-infused honey
• Pinch of flaky sea salt
• Turano Rustic Grains
• The whipped ricotta
• The thyme honey
• 1 blood orange, peeled and sliced
• 1 grapefruit, peeled and sliced
• 1 navel orange, peeled and sliced
• Flaky sea salt


① Place the honey and thyme in a small saucepan set over medium-low heat. Warm up the honey, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow it to cool completely to room temperature. Strain out and discard the thyme before using.
② Place the ricotta in a food processor and process until very smooth and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons of the honey and whip again for a minute or so. Taste and add more honey if desired and a pinch of flaky sea salt. Pulse to combine. Keep at room temperature until ready to serve (if you’re making it in advance, keep it in the fridge and let it come to room temperature again before serving).
③ Toast your Turano Rustic Grain slices to desired doneness. While the bread is still warm, slather on the whipped ricotta. Next, layer on the citrus slices. Drizzle everything with the thyme-infused honey and sprinkle with a little salt. Serve immediately.
