Figs and Ricotta

Chef Abbie Gellman RD

Figs are one of my favorite fruits and so simple to prepare for family and friends. But figs and ricotta? Glorious!

Add some fluffy, creamy ricotta cheese, a tiny bit of honey, and I’m in heaven. These delicious little bites are perfect as an appetizer or dessert. A healthy and delicious addition to your next gathering!
