Peaches grow a few hours inland from where I live – in the Okanagan region. It’s an area that gets hot dry summers and has perfect growing conditions for fruit (and wine! yum!)
I vacationed at a lake in the Okanagan two weeks ago, and peaches were the one thing I was set on bringing back home. (Besides cherries. And apricots. And blueberries. And tomatoes. Oh, and lots and lots of wine. 😉 )
At 8:00 am on the morning we were set to leave, before we had eaten breakfast or even had a cup of coffee, J and I drove to the produce farm that sells the peaches. Our produce season has been delayed this year due to a cold spring, and now that peach season has finally arrived, we were told the peaches were selling out quickly.
And now I have peaches on peaches on peaches!
Peach Ricotta Toast isn’t a recipe so much as it’s a combination of flavours – a combination of delicious flavours, I might add, and one that you must make for your next breakfast pronto!
- 2 slices of bread
- ricotta cheese (approx 2 tablespoons)
- 1 ripe fresh peach, pitted and sliced
- roasted and salted pistachios, chopped
- honey, if desired
Toast both slices of bread. Spread approximately 1 tablespoon of ricotta cheese on each piece of toast. Layer peach slices over top and then sprinkle pistachios. Drizzle with honey, if desired, for extra sweetness. Devour.

I have an undying love for fancy toast. Toast in general is freakin’ fabulous, but when you can smear it with soft cheeses and top it off with seasonal ingredients and crunchy seeds or nuts, SO GOOD. so, so good.
