  • 1 gluten-free baguette
  • ¼ cup olive oil , divided
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 teaspoons lemon zest , divided
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 16 ounces whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • ½ teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons shelled pistachios , chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh basil , slivered


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Slice baguette into ½ inch thick rounds. Lay all bread slices on a baking sheet and brush olive oil on both sides of each piece of the bread and bake for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  • Once bread is done and while it is still warm, peel garlic cloves and slice in half. Rub the raw garlic heavily on each slice of the bread.
  • Stir half of the fresh lemon zest and juice into the ricotta cheese. Generously spread the ricotta evenly on each slice of bread. Lightly drizzle olive oil over ricotta-topped bread, then lightly drizzle honey over each of the slices. Top each piece with remaining lemon zest, a sprinkle of the coarse sea salt, and the chopped pistachios. Top all the slices evenly with the slivered basil. Serve at room temperature.
