It’s the simplest ingredients that go the longest ways. I mean roasted garlic is good on a flip-flop. So with these 4 simple ingredients you are about to make a meal that will have your taste buds so damn happy. I got this recipe from Brad on It’s Alive by Bon Appetit. It should be noted that I love him very much but at the same time I need Bon Appetit to pay their POC employee’s fairly. This recipe uses homemade sourdough, but you don’t have to be like me and make sourdough solely for this recipe. Feel free to use a demi-baguette or whatever kind of bread your heart desires.
- Sourdough Bread/Demi-Baguette, sliced
- Ricotta Cheese
- Olive oil
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Garlic Cloves
- Salt + Pepper
Let’s Get Cooking
Bring out a large sauce pan and add in about 1-2 TBSP olive oil. Add in 6-8 cherry tomatoes [depending on how many people you are cooking for, use about 6 for one serving] and whole cloves of garlic, with the husks on, about 2-4.
Saute the tomatoes and garlic until the tomatoes begin to burst open and slightly char and the garlic has softened. Remove from heat, placing the garlic in the bowl first and tomatoes on top, top off with salt + a little olive oil.
Add in about 2 TSP more of olive oil into the same pan and place the sliced bread into the pan, allow to toast on both sides.
While the bread is toasting, place ricotta cheese in a bowl. Take the garlic from the tomatoes and remove the husks. Smash the garlic with a knife and rough chop them. Once chopped add to the ricotta. Add in olive oil + salt + pepper and mix well.
Once the bread is toasted to your preference, top off with the ricotta cheese, tomatoes, and any juices that is left off in the tomato bowl.
