How to Roast Blueberries:

If you’ve never roasted blueberries before, don’t worry! It’s incredibly simple and requires just a few items.

To start, preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. While it’s heating up, grab a sheet pan and some parchment paper. Line the pan with the parchment paper.

Next, wash the fresh and delicious blueberries, and then add them directly onto the sheet pan.

Sprinkle some sugar on top of the blueberries (a pinch or about 1 teaspoon should do).

Once the oven is preheated, place the sheet pan with the blueberries into the oven.

After about 10-12 minutes, your blueberries will be ready. They’ll be bursting with flavor, and you’ll notice lots of juicy goodness on the pan (that’s why we used parchment paper for easy cleanup!).

Assembling Blueberry Ricotta Toast

Now that your blueberries are finished roasting, I highly recommend enjoying them while they’re still warm. While they’re in the oven, you can prepare the ricotta!

Simply add the ricotta to a bowl and use a whisk to whisk it for about 1 minute. This will ensure that the texture is smooth and creamy. Enjoy!

It’s time to assemble your delicious toast! Begin by toasting your bread to your desired level of crispiness. Once toasted, spread 1-2 tablespoons of the whipped ricotta evenly on top of each slice of bread.

Next, add a generous portion of the roasted blueberries on top of the whipped ricotta layer.

If desired, drizzle honey over the assembled toast for a touch of sweetness, and garnish with fresh mint leaves for added freshness and flavor.

Now, your toast is ready to enjoy! Pair it with a cup of coffee and your favorite morning read for the perfect start to your day. This recipe is simple, delicious, and perfect for enjoying the flavors of summer. I hope you love it as much as I do!

Store Leftovers Blueberry Ricotta Toast

If you have any leftover blueberries, store them in a tightly sealed Tupperware container in the fridge for up to 3 days. You can use them to make the same toast the next day, or try adding them to a warm bowl of oatmeal for a delicious breakfast option.

Similarly, if you have any leftover ricotta, store it in the same manner in the fridge. Use it within 3 days for another round of toast or incorporate it into your favorite recipes.
