Tomato & Ricotta Toast
Have you heard? Toast is trending, and it’s not just for breakfast anymore! Shake up your breakfast routine with this easy Simple Cooking with Heart toast recipe or devour as an afternoon snack. For any leftover ricotta cheese in the container, consider smearing it over tomato slices. Top with breadcrumbs and broil for a couple minutes.
- 1 cup ricotta cheese
- 2 Tbsp. chopped green onion or scallions
- 3/4 tsp. sodium-free Italian seasoning
- 1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
- 4 slices whole-grain or whole wheat bread
- 2-3 medium tomatoes, thickly sliced
Tip: Serving size 1 toast
Keep it Healthy: Compare labels for Italian seasoning, making sure to go with the one without any added sodium. Or, consider making your own using equal proportions of the following dried herbs: basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, and garlic powder.
Cooking Tip: The same amount of chopped chives or red onion can be substituted for the scallions.
Tip: Prefer to turn this toast into a hot sandwich for lunch? Simply place toast on a foil-lined baking sheet and pop under the broiler until cheese is melty, about 1 to 2 minutes.
