Roasted Blueberry Ricotta Crostini

Roasted Blueberry Ricotta Crostini

Moving was such a pain –not to mention the packing, unpacking and organizing.  I finally have most of my kitchen stuff unpacked, cleaned and ready for use.  Nelson and EW are coming over for lunch and to check out the new house.  They’re my first guests over and the house is still somewhat of a mess.  I thought I make it easy on myself by making a simple starter.

Ingredients:

  • 12 ounces of fresh blueberries
  • juice from half a lemon, divided (half of the juice for the blueberries & half of the juice for the ricotta cheese)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • a few sprigs of fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 baguette, thinly sliced on an angle
  • Additional honey, for drizzling

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.  Place blueberries in a baking sheet.  Add lemon juice, honey and thyme.  Gently toss the blueberries to coat and roast for 7-10 minutes or until blueberries are soft and almost ready to burst.  Be sure to take them out of the oven before they burst.  Let the blueberries cool to
room temperature.

Place baguette slices in a large baking sheet and bake for 5-7 minutes or until edges are slightly golden brown.

In a small bowl combine ricotta cheese, lemon zest and lemon juice.  Mix well and spread the baguette slices with the ricotta cheese mixture.  Then spoon the roasted blueberries on top of the cheese.  Drizzle with additional
honey and serve.

  1. You must be so relieved to have finally moved.
    These sound just incredible. I’ve always loved anything blueberry, especially as they grew wild (we called them bilberries) within high hedges where I grew up. In Autumn I’d invariably return home with purple lips and hands!

    • Thanks! 🙂 I love blueberries too, especially with this recipe. It was super refreshing! It must have been nice to have easy access to them while growing up. I’d have purple lips and hands too if I were you.

      I am relieved! I’m still in the unpacking stage so it’s a pain. But it’s a slow work in progress.

  2. Suddenly craving another batch of these. I think these would taste great with a beer that’s on the sweet side. Maybe a Belgian Tripel…
