Whipped Ricotta + Herbs

Today's recipe comes to you courtesy of The Glitter Guide. This cute little website offers all kinds of cheerful things and has become one of my favorites. If you don't already subscribe, it's a fun, easy read and always puts a smile on my face.

This recipe is SO EASY, and it seems silly to give it its own post, but it's also too good not to share. I have made this twice already- two weeks ago for a progressive dinner party and last week for our pre-Thanksgiving dinner happy hour. Both times it was a giant hit and when someone asked for the recipe, they couldn't believe how easy it was. I'm hosting an annual girls Christmas dinner in a few weeks and I do believe I'll be adding this to my heavy hors d'oeuvres menu. 

Make this a night ahead for extra flavor!

Whipped Ricotta + Herbs
recipe from The Glitter Guide

Ricotta cheese (full fat)
Fresh herbs, finely chopped (I used rosemary, sage and thyme)
Sea salt
Good olive oil

Whip ricotta in a food processor for 30 seconds. Chop up fresh herbs and fold in with the ricotta. Add a dash of salt to taste. Before serving, drizzle with good olive oil.

I served my ricotta with toasted baguette slices. (Brush with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes, or until nice and toasted) My other favorite way to enjoy it? With a spoon.
