Open-faced Flatbread with Dressings

Sometimes the best food combinations come out by accident. Made this meal one night after coming back from night class and just threw some things together. My roommates made fun of me for calling this a lazy meal; but hey what can I say, I guess i’m just not a KD girl. Honestly though, can’t even describe how good this combination is!

Toasted flatbread with ricotta cheese, cucumber, fried egg, honey mustard, ranch dressing and BBQ sauce. Added some mint for a garnish

Delicious.

Figs, Ricotta and Marmalade

Noms: Figs, Ricotta and Marmalade

It’s so easy to make fresh figs taste good! This simple appetizer is a great summer treat that takes minutes to make but looks beautiful when plated. I baked my figs until they slightly browned then added a dollop of ricotta cheese, citrus marmalade and an alternating sprig of mint or thai basil. I added a squirt of fresh lime to enhance the citrus flavour and add a punch. Next time (and there will definitely be a next time) I want to add some crushed chilli flakes for a bit of a kick. Nonetheless this simple appetizer is sure to be a crowd pleaser!

Blueberries, Bananas and Ricotta

Noms: Blueberries, Bananas and Ricotta

Nothing like a quick breakfast smoothie to start your day! I had a bunch of blueberries to use up so that’s why the color is so vibrant! Today’s smoothie was made with bluberries, banana, almond milk, a couple almonds topped with a dollop of ricotta cheese and a mint leaf. Yum!
