This Plant-Based Strawberry Ricotta Toast combines the creamy richness of plant-based ricotta cheese with the vibrant sweetness of fresh strawberries, creating a mouthwatering treat that will satisfy your taste buds.

Don’t have fresh fruit on hand? No problem. Frozen fruits can be a fantastic alternative. Simply thaw them or heat them in the microwave for a few minutes, and they’ll be ready to elevate your toast to new heights of flavour.

To enhance the sweetness of this delightful treat, consider drizzling a touch of maple syrup over the top. This simple addition will take the Plant-Based Strawberry Ricotta Toast to the next level, adding a hint of indulgence that will make your taste buds dance with joy.

Perfect for any occasion, from a casual brunch to a gathering of friends, this dessert is sure to impress. Its vibrant colours and exquisite flavours make it a feast for both the eyes and the palate.

Now, let’s gather the ingredients:

My Ingredient List

  • 1 container (220g) of Nafsika’s Garden plant-based ricotta-style cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of chilled coconut cream
  • 1 vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped (or 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract)
  • 1/4 cup of confectioners sugar
  • 6 ounces of strawberries, halved and sliced
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon of granulated sugar
  • 4 slices of bakery rustic bread

Now, here’s how you bring this delightful plant-based recipe to life:

In a medium bowl, combine the plant-based ricotta cheese, chilled coconut cream, scraped vanilla bean seeds (or vanilla extract), and confectioners sugar. Whisk vigorously by hand or with a hand mixer until the mixture is smooth and creamy, which should take about 2 minutes.

In a separate medium mixing bowl, combine the chopped strawberries, lemon juice, and granulated sugar. Allow the mixture to sit for a while, letting the strawberries soften and release their natural juices.

While the strawberries macerate, toast the slices of rustic bread until they are golden brown and crispy.

Once toasted, scoop a generous amount of the plant-based ricotta mixture onto each slice of bread, spreading it evenly to create a thick and creamy layer. Then, spoon the macerated strawberries on top of the ricotta, arranging them in a visually pleasing manner.

Take a moment to appreciate the beauty of your creation before taking your first bite. The creamy plant-based ricotta, the juicy strawberries, and the crisp bread harmonize in a symphony of flavours that will surely leave you wanting more.

Enjoy this Plant-Based Strawberry Ricotta Toast as a delightful dessert, a decadent snack, or even a unique breakfast option. The choice is yours, and the pleasure is all yours to savour.
