For toast worth toasting, blend your favorite shades of food coloring with cream cheese or ricotta, then embellish at will.
For the toast:
4 slices of bread, toasted
6oz ricotta, cream cheese or dairy free spread (we like Kite Hill)
Supernatural Food Color, any color(s)
Embellishment ideas (pick any):
Apple or banana slices
- Divide ricotta or cream cheese among small bowls, into however many portions you need for your chosen color(s). You may want to preserve some white cheese, too.
- Prepare your color(s), then add drop by drop to each bowl of cheese until reaching your desired color.
- With a knife or the back of a spoon, swirl colors onto toast. Wiping down the utensil between swoops will help your colors stay distinct.
- Embellish to your heart's content.
