Buttered Radish and Ricotta Toast

  • Author: Erin Alderson
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 10 mins
  • Yield: 1 to 2 servings 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 slices rye or wheat bread (see note)
  • 1/2 bunch breakfast radishes
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup fresh or homemade ricotta
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons fresh minced flat-leaf parsley

Instructions

  1. Toast the bread and set aside.
  2. Cut radishes in half lengthwise and cut each half into 1/4″ thick half moon slices. Melt butter in a small skillet, add radishes, and cook over medium low until tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in salt and lemon zest, taste and adjust salt level as needed.
  3. Top toast with a smear of fresh ricotta, a sprinkle of cooked radishes, and finish with parsley.

Notes

I love rye bread but it can often be overpowering for the delicate ricotta and radishes. Use wheat if you want a nice balance (or a lighter rye!)
