I sometimes wonder if we over complicate our food? It is very very easy to jump on whichever food bandwagon or fad is currently the most popular and miss out on some equally delicious but simple pleasures?
Having had a week in France, shortly followed by a week in Washington I wanted some simpler and lighter food. We bought beautiful berries in the market and ricotta in the supermarket – destined for another dish which also doubled up as a lighter and less calorific substitute for cream atop a bowl of berries.
Recipe: Lemon & Mint Ricotta “Cream”
1 heaped tbs ricotta
1 tsp caster sugar
Zest half a lemon – finely grated
3 mint leaves – finely snipped
Place in a bowl and mix well.
Serve on fresh berries
