Figs again! This recipe for fig and maple ricotta toasts is a great idea for a weekend brunch, or you can make smaller toasts to serve as sweetish canapés at a party or barbecue. It couldn’t be simpler to make!
Adding maple syrup to the ricotta transforms this into a subtly sweet dish and pairs really well with the fresh figs. The finishing touch of the rosemary sugar rounds off the dish with a herby hint.
- 1-2 pieces of your favourite bread (or smaller pieces if you’re making canapés)
- 2 tbsp ricotta
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1-2 fresh figs
- Small sprig rosemary
- Caster sugar
- Toast the bread.
- Stir the maple syrup into the ricotta and spread onto the toast. Top with slices of fresh fig.
- Finely chop the rosemary and take about 1/2 teaspoon and mix with the same amount of caster sugar. Sprinkle over the figs on toast and serve.
