Vegan Cacao Ricotta Toast

Vegan Cacao Ricotta Toast

Thank you for joining Deborah and me for another Meatless Monday! I can’t wait to see what you have this week and hope you are inspired by some of the links below.

Tis Meatless Monday the day before Valentine’s Day and I bring to you Vegan Cacao Ricotta Toast! Valentine’s Day isn’t a huge deal in our house except for the girls Valentine’s and an excuse to make cute heart shaped and or pink and red foods. Oh and consume some chocolate! We usually just eat dinner in at home. This year since it falls on a gymnastics night I think I might just have my husband whip up some homemade pasta. Before we can get to dinner though there has to be breakfast and instead of baking up some muffins or treats I thought since Valentine’s Day falls on Tuesday we would also celebrate Toast Tuesday with some fun toast! Since we’re love making homemade sourdough, yes we I can make it now I passed Mr. Whisk’s training, I thought it was perfect. Yes a little obsessed as you may know if you follow me on social media because my gluten sensitive tummy is handling it so well. Which means since Christmas I’ve had more bread than I’ve had over the whole last couple years!

Vegan Cacao Ricotta Toast

It wouldn’t be Valentine’s without chocolate so I decided to make Cacao Ricotta (dairy free) to spread on the toasted fresh sourdough and add fun toppings from there. This is great for breakfast and customizing how you want it, I’ve added a few favorites, or even dessert! Or shh dinner because give me a few slices of this and a glass of wine and I’d be a happy girl.

You can use any bread you want, as I said I used our homemade sourdough. The options are endless and I can’t really tell you if I have a favorite. Fresh berries, chocolate chips, cacao nibs, coconut chips (coffee coconut chips, bacon coconut chips), nut butter, bananas, muesli or granola, chocolate drizzle, balsamic vinegars, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, or anything else you can think of. I may have gone a little crazy but hey it was fun! Sometimes I just can’t make a decision, or maybe wanting them all is really a decision.

Never did it ever cross my mind that I would post a toast “recipe” but hey this Cacao Ricotta is good for things other than just toast. I actually used it in individual brownie mountain stacks for my father in laws birthday and it was a hit. Layers of brownie and Cacao Ricotta topped with coconut whipped cream and drizzled with chocolate!

What are you making for Valentine’s?

      It’s it crazy how versatile toast is! I’m on such a kick I could probably eat it for every meal lately too!

  2. I didn’t realize there was a vegan version of ricotta out there! I like regular ricotta toast in some of the sweet combos you listed, so I bet I’d love this vegan version too. πŸ™‚

      The maple syrup is for sweetness but you can use honey if you’d like. It just helps with the texture vs a non liquid sweetener.

    • awhiskandtwowands says:

      Thank you! Yes after thought I should have left that off as those who can eat dairy can use regular ricotta as I also made a version for extended family for a dessert and they loved it.

  23. Jenn says:

    I love this! They could even work for dessert I think. Very creative!

  24. Lately I have been craving toast like crazy, this is such a perfect way to enjoy it and my other favorite love chocolate!!

    • awhiskandtwowands says:

      The crave is real, I know! Never thought I would crave toast. Except for when I was at my grandparents and my grandpa would always have toast with butter and jam at the end of every meal. As a kid I thought mac n cheese followed by jelly toast was amazing!

  25. What a fun way to do toast! Love the addition of chocolate for a sweet twist!

  26. Kerri Olkjer says:

    Any excuse to add chocolate to breakfast! Love the flavor options.

    These vegan cacao ricotta toasts look so delicious! I love all the variation possibilities for toppings! These are a definite must-make!

  28. Over the top Sarah! I have to admit, I love chocolate straight up or in dense and fudgy formats, but I’ve never been a fan of chocolate with anything bready. BUT, I think your cacao spiked spread might be up my alley. It looks more flavorful and not as straight up chocolate on bread.

  29. Holy crapbag that looks good!!! I break out “crapbag” when I’m really excited about something haha πŸ˜‰
    I haven’t tried the ricotta yet, but I’m definitely going to try this out – it sounds so good! I love the pictures too, with all of the varieties of toppings!
