Lavender Ricotta Toast

Lavender is not a “put it on anything” kind of flavor. The bold, heady aroma needs to be harnessed to be enjoyed. You can’t just let it run wild like cumin or garlic. But there is so much about lavender to appreciate! Its floral flavors are the taste of spring. Enter ricotta. This mild spreadable cheese is easy to make and a touch of lavender transforms it into a really special spread. Perfectly creamy for smearing on toast, the intensity of lavender is mellowed by the milk, and brings out the sweetness in the dairy. The resulting spread is delicious on its own, but here we garnished the toast with roasted beets, cherry tomatoes and pickled onion to make it a meal.
