Hey there Galley Peeps,
the Kat will be away again,
this time only briefly.
Here is something yummy to snack on while I’m away…
…ricotta, artichokes, spices and some tangy lemon…
…mix it all together…
LEMON RICOTTA SPREAD
2 cups ricotta
1 lemon, juiced and zested
2-3 cloves garlic, grated
1 can artichokes, well drained and chopped
1/2 cup grated parmesan
1 tsp dried chilis
1 tsp dried chives
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp freshly cracked pepper
good quality olive oil for drizzling
crackers or crusty bread slices
Mix everything but olive oil and crackers or bread together in a heat proof dish.
Next (and you can do this 3 ways),
1. Heat in oven at 350 ° for about 15-20 minutes
or
2. Heat in your microwave on medium for 2-3 minutes
..
and
since you know by now this Kat has no oven onboard
and the only waves I deal with are the watery kind..
3.Fire up your grill on medium low
and heat this delicious mixture with the grill lid covered
until all melty and hot.
Drizzle with olive oil and dive in.
There now wasn’t that easy?…
…maybe by the time you finish this, I’ll be back.
Will see if I can catch some East Coast food porn for you while away.
