Whipped Ricotta Toast With Candied Blood Oranges
Walking around my local farmers market, I stumbled upon some blood oranges and immediately knew I was buying them. What I was going to do with them next, well, that was another story. Every year, I plan on buying blood oranges in season (right now!), and making all sorts of yumminess with them. That’s food blogger code for a super delicious recipe. Inevitably, year after year, I end up not buying these blood oranges and said yummy recipes never happen.
Well, not this year! I wasn’t missing out on these gorgeous little beauties again. No way! This stunner of recipe was a lot of fun and oh-so simple to throw together. Along with the blood oranges, I picked up some really yummy bread and a little ricotta cheese along the way. When I got home, Whipped Ricotta Toast With Candied Blood Oranges was born. This recipe is what dreams are made of; super simple to make, yet so cool to serve.
