Herby Fresh Tomato Toast
Lately most of the things I venture to cook in my tiny San Antonio kitchen never get talked about here. The oven is quick to go from almost ready to almost burned. And I have yet to find a nice “go-to” spot for taking pictures of what might be interesting. But I keep trying. For instance, yesterday while making ricotta I dumped a quart of warm whey on myself, the rug, and most of the cabinets. I bumped it while putting away dishes so I could wash dishes. (One counter top. A tiny 24″ of counter space.) It was a sad wet mess. There will be laundry!
I cheered up quickly because the cheese was delicious! I couldn’t wait for it to drain overnight, so after I cleaned up the floor I had some. Still warm, the creamy cheese sat on top of the most delicious easy little bread. I toasted the super grainy bread in the oven- I was recreating an herby tomato water, red wine vinaigrette. The whole dish was inspired by this recipe from Bon Appetit. I knew I would make my own version. It was yummy! Ripe tomatoes with fresh dill and basil go a long way these summer months.
And I’ll have the house-made ricotta on fresh bread whenever possible!
