Roasted Blueberry Ricotta Crostini

'Roasted Blueberry Ricotta Crostini'


2 cups fresh blueberries
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
1 tablespoon honey
1 cup ricotta cheese
Zest of 1 large lemon
1 French baguette, thinly sliced and toasted
Additional honey, for drizzling


1. Heat oven to 400. Place blueberries on a large baking sheet. Pour two tablespoons of fresh lemon juice and drizzle 1 tablespoon honey over blueberries. Gently toss the berries to coat.

2. Roast for 7-10 minutes or until blueberries are soft and almost ready to pop. You want to take them out of the oven before they pop. Set aside and allow to cool to room temperature.

3. In a small bowl, combine ricotta cheese, the remaining 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, and lemon zest. Spread the baguette slices with the ricotta cheese mixture. Spoon roasted blueberries on top of the cheese. Drizzle each baguette slice with honey and serve.


  1. Thanks for posting the pictures, you just brought back my blueberry obsession! But I've never thought of eating them with bread unless it's jam. I would love to try this one, too bad our built-in oven has a bad ventilation system... hey, why don't you try selling these? I'll be your first buyer!

  2. Fresh blueberries, fresh lemon juice, honey (one of the healthiest sweeteners), ricotta cheese and baguette - I haven't seen one UNHEALTHY ingredient here! I think I wanna try this at home. I love sweets, but I should be limiting my sugar (I'm using diabetic sweeteners, actually). Since I'll be using pure honey anyway, I'll still make this at home. Thanks for the recipe! - Jean Raizel

  3. Did the honey work out? I could try using low calorie sweeteners too, but I think I want to try honey first because it seems more appropriate to use in desserts.

  4. That roasted blueberry ricotta crostini is much more enjoyable eating during picnics. I've been thinking about making some of those later.

  5. I always love blueberries. They are not too sweet and always good on pies. But this one on baguettes makes my mouth water.

  6. Just found you...when searching for blueberry recipes. This one looks really good!

    Re: aging...Don't get hung up on numbers. You are as young as you feel. I turn 60 this summer...Yes, my hands look different...wrinkly with a few "age spots" (but Hand Tender helps!), and I have some sagging and creases in my face (from smiling so much!). There are wrinkles around my eyes (Eye Tender and EyeWish Bioserum help) and there's a little gray in my hair (I, too, am blonde and they don't show too much...but if you wish, there's hair color for that). But I am often mistaken for someone much younger...and it's all attitude! My sister-in-law gave me a pin to wear on my 40th birthday...it said "40 with Flair". That's been my mantra ever since. I don't want to be OLD...not the age, but the attitude. My mother has been a great role model for this...she is 94. And until dementia took over her mind, she was the most active and vibrant woman I knew...at 90, 91, 92. Her sister...who is 100!...went kayaking on her 100th birthday! Now that's the attitude!!! AGE IS JUST A NUMBER!
