Whipped Chive Ricotta with Truffle Honey & Grilled Sourdough


By Kim Kushner

This recipe is heaven. And all it takes is 10 minutes to prepare. That is beyond heaven! Every time I serve this, the reviews are top notch. Feel free to swap the sourdough for sliced baguette, grilled pita, or when you’re out of bread, use your favorite crackers. I always keep a jar of truffle honey in my pantry. Remember, a little bit goes a long way.

Whipped Chive Ricotta with Truffle Honey & Grilled Sourdough

Serves 8 people


1 container (16 oz/454 g) whole milk ricotta cheese

1 tablespoon finely minced chives

pinch of kosher salt

pinch of black pepper

1 loaf of sourdough, sliced into 1/2-inch thick slices

1 tablespoon good quality extra virgin olive oil

2 teaspoons truffle honey


1. Using a stand or handheld mixer or handheld mixer fitted with the wire whisk, whip the ricotta on high speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes.

2. Using a spatula, gently fold the chopped chives, salt and pepper into the ricotta.

3. Heat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.

4. Brush the tops of the sliced sourdough with the olive oil and grill for 1-2 minutes per side, until golden.

5. Drizzle the truffle honey over the whipped ricotta and serve alongside the grilled sourdough.


Sourdough is best grilled just before serving.

Whipped Ricotta can be covered and refrigerated for up to 4 hours (although the ricotta will be fluffiest when served immediately after whipping)
