Beet & Ricotta Bruschetta

Beet & Ricotta Bruschetta

If you have already seen our recipe for Balsamic Roasted Beet Soup you already know all of the reasons why we are loving beets and the health benefits they bring to the table. If you haven’t seen it it is definitely worth checking out to warm up these increasingly chilly nights.

Another reason we are a bit beet crazy over here is because of the presentation. The color that roasted beets bring really steps up your plating. Plus when paired with our other bruschetta creations it really rounds out the color scheme for your bruschetta bar.

Now onto the flavor profile. We chose the creamy ricotta as our base both for its lovely texture and for its ability to melt with other ingredients. Making ricotta cheese the perfect highlight for the earthiness of our roasted beets. And of course, to top it off we are using our Aged Balsamic Vinegar which adds both a sweetness and richness to our beet and ricotta bruschetta.
