Strawberry Ricotta Toast: A Yummy Springtime Lunch

It’s strawberry season!!! Tempted by that big bucket of strawberries at the farmer’s market, but not sure what you’d do with them? Use them to make a yummy sandwich – one that both you and your toddler will love!

I recently went strawberry-happy at the farmer’s market, mainly because I have no willpower and I can’t say no to someone offering me a one gallon bucket of berries for $12. Because pregnancy.

But I was glad I did, because it made me come up with this awesome lunch that hits all the marks: quick, no-cook, and healthy! It’s super easy and thanks to the ricotta and strawberries, it’s the perfect mix of satisfying and sweet. Here’s the recipe!

Strawberry Ricotta-Honey Sandwich

This one is so easy, and after I made it I couldn’t believe that I never thought to do this before. It was a quick lunch that turned out to be both filling and just the right amount of protein and sweetness.

You’ll need:

  • 1 handful of strawberries (rinsed, stems removed, sliced into chunks)
  • 2 tbsp. fresh ricotta cheese
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 piece of whole grain toast

To assemble it:

Mix the ricotta and the honey together in a bowl. Spread it on a slice of toast. Top with strawberries, and serve. DONE!
