If you love figs, this recipe is undoubtedly one of the easiest ways to enjoy the natural flavors of this delicious fruit. Simply smear your toast with a no-fuss whipped lemon honey ricotta spread, top on some fresh figs, and sprinkle on some toasted walnuts. Voila! You’re done! But, if you want to elevate this recipe into something a little more elegant, make every bite gooey by drizzling on a little more honey, round off the sweetness with a dash of sea salt, and finishing everything off with some fresh lemon zest. This is a perfect energy-boosting treat you can enjoy any time of the day. Serve this to your friends, and they’ll completely forget about avocado toast.
