Ingredients

  • 4 pieces sourdough/crusty bread
  • 2 large figs
  • 140 g ricotta
  • 1 tbsp cream
  • 1 vanilla pod seeds
  • 1/2 a lemon zest
  • Pinch of salt
  • 20 g hazelnuts toasted
  • Honey
  • Amaranth popped

Instructions

  • To make the whipped ricotta: Place the ricotta, cream, vanilla, lemon zest and a pinch of salt in a blender. Blend all the ingredients until you get a creamy texture. Place the mixture in a piping bag and set aside, preferably in the fridge.
  • Toast the hazelnuts until they are slightly brown. Do not skip this part! Toasting the nuts makes their taste 100 times better.
  • Cut the figs into quarters or into circular slices and set aside.
  • Toast the bread until your desired degree of doneness.
  • Pipe the whipped ricotta on the toast, place the figs and hazelnuts on top. Finish it off with some honey and a sprinkling of popped amaranth or any other topping you’d like!
