Honey, Ricotta & Pistachio Spread for Crackers

By: The Food Hunter

Chances are good you will probably get an unexpected guest or two this holiday season and will need, at the very least, a snack to serve them. It's situations like this where it's important to have staples such as crackers and nuts always in the pantry.

Though both of these are just fine on their own there are countless ways to use them together to create interesting sweet or savory snacks for your guests. Before you jump to conclusions, I should tell you that I don't keep any old cracker in my house. It has to be a product that is non-GMO and made with a minimal amount of carefully selected ingredients and of course it also has to taste good!

Back to Nature's multigrain flax seed flatbread and their stoneground wheat crackers are two that I like a lot. The flatbread are thin savory crackers with a hint of nuts. They are best served with creamy toppings (like the honey, ricotta & pistachio spread below). The stoneground wheat are a heartier cracker sprinkled with sea salt, that pair well with hard cheese.

Honey, Ricotta & Pistachio Spread for Crackers
1 cup ricotta cheese
honey to drizzle
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, minced
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Back to Nature multigrain flax seeded flatbread crackers, for serving
Back to Nature pistachio nuts, chopped

Mix the ricotta with the chopped thyme and season with salt.  Warm ricotta mixture in a 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Generously spread on crackers, drizzle with your favorite honey and top with chopped pistachios.
