Tomato Wholewheat Sandwiches with Goat’s Milk Ricotta are the perfect savory breakfast or a quick snack. Vegetarian and delicious!

It’s taken a while to post this recipe, as it was first created when tomatoes were in high season. Sorry about that, but circumstances. Although tomatoes are not in season anymore, they can still be bought in stores from greenhouses, so this recipe can still be enjoyed. Actually, as I am writing this, our front lawn is covered in frost, so hello, winter!

These Tomato Wholewheat Sandwiches with Goat’s Milk Ricotta are a fast and easy breakfast or snack option. They come together in just a couple of minutes, but although they are so simple, they pack a whole lot of flavor!

I highly recommend using the goat’s milk ricotta from Kmetija Pustotnik, as it was intended, but any other ricotta or goat’s milk cheese will do just fine… just don’t forget to add a few fresh chives on top.

These wholewheat open-faced sandwiches are topped with goat’s milk ricotta and tomatoes, sprinkled with black olives and drizzled with a delicious balsamic vinegar reduction. Toast your bread slightly before you use it, to get more crunch and flavor out of it. This way, you can even use up stale bread – just make sure to spread it with a thin layer of butter before toasting!

Tomato Wholewheat Sandwiches with Goat’s Milk Ricotta

Ingredients

  • 4 slices wholewheat bread
  • 8 slices goat's milk ricotta with chives from Kmetija Pustotnik (or other goat's milk ricotta or cheese)
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • handful of black olives
  • fresh basil leaves
  • pinch of salt or fleur de sel
  • black pepper, freshly ground
  • balsamic vinegar reduction

Instructions

  1. Wash and dry vegetables and herbs.
  2. Cut goat's milk ricotta into thin slices. Cut tomatoes into slices. Remove pit from black olives and cut olives into long slices.
  3. Place ricotta slices on bread and top with tomato slices. Add a few olive slices and fresh basil leaves.
  4. Sprinkle sandwiches with salt or fleur de sel and freshly ground black pepper. Finish with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar reduction and serve.
  5. PRO TIP: You can buy balsamic vinegar reduction in stores or make it at home yourself. Place half a cup of balsamic vinegar in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Then, reduce heat and let it simmer on low for about 15-20 minutes, or until the liquids evaporate and the sauce thickens.
