‘What I Ate’ is a series of posts for so-easy-this-doesn’t-need-a-recipe but I’m sharing with you for the idea or inspiration.
I was thinking I’d go for another fruity & nutty option, in a different direction than a nut butter one like this one. I wanted soft & sweet with crunchy and salty. This hit the spot, plus it was so dang quick to throw together! Of all my toasts, this one was perfect for balance. I liked the bit of creamy dairy, the small amount of salty crunchy nuts, and the fresh fruit. I made another baby one with the almost-heal of the bread to be a solid breakfast meal.
Peach & Pistachio Toast
Ingredients: for 1 serving
2 tablespoons ricotta or cream cheese
1/2 nectarine or peach
2 tablespoons shelled pistachios
Toast the bread until crunchy.
Slice the peach/nectarine into thin pieces
chop the nuts a bit
I love the flavor of pistachios and I probably don’t use them nearly enough. I was itching to make this toast but needed the nectarine to ripen a bit. I don’t love the fuzz of a peach but to each his own. The ricotta provided a creaminess as well as the sticking point to ensure each bite didn’t have toppings sliding all over!
I dare say, frozen peaches are pretty good for flavor and texture so this one wouldn’t be impossible at other seasons of the year when peaches aren’t around. Maybe I’ll make a winter-ized version in the cooler months. The peaches might need to be chopped but, it could work!
Ok, make some toast. Go nutty at breakfast.
