Whipped Ricotta Dip with Roasted Tomatoes

This delicious whipped ricotta dip is such a quick and delicious appetizer. I love to serve with french bread that has been toasted. Also delicious with roasted tomatoes


  • 1 (15-ounce) container of whole milk ricotta
  • 8-10 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Juice from one lemon
  • 1 clove of minced garlic
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • Basil for garnish, optional
  • Hot Honey to taste


    1. Add basil, salt, lemon juice, garlic, and hot honey to a food processor.
    2. Pulse together until basil is chopped.
    3. Add ricotta and continue to blend until creamy to your liking. About one minute should do it.
    4. Pour it into a bowl, drizzle it with hot honey, and enjoy

You may not know this about me, but I LOVE appetizers. Honestly, if I could only have appetizers for dinner, I would be thrilled.

I enjoy the simplicity of this whipped ricotta with roasted tomatoes recipe. The ricotta provides a perfect refreshing base that is just enhanced by the rest of the ingredients.
