Coletta’s Almond “Ricotta” Bruschetta

Though new on the scene, Coletta has already established itself as a major player in the Gramercy Park restaurant community. Two key qualities set Coletta apart: a unique combination of tradition and innovation.

Nothing symbolizes those two ideals quite like this creative bruschetta!

This appetizer starts with a base of a freshly toasted baguette. From here, our trained chefs bring on the flavor: caramelized mission figs, agave, and chili bring a sweet heat you won’t soon forget, while a dash of pistachios provides an equally memorable texture contrast.

Baked “ricotta” adds a warm, wholesome touch to this otherwise complex meal. A handful of arugula salad only adds to the depth of every bite, showcasing an element of fresh, green veggies. Finally, a sprinkling of oregano brings this meal right back to its Italian roots.

Salty and sweet, gooey and crisp, this deceptively simple appetizer has something to offer everyone, no matter their mood!

Homemade Classic Vegan Bruschetta

It may be difficult to recreate Willow’s own original bruschetta at home, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a classic! Start with a base of classic vegan bruschetta, then experiment with all of your own ingredients, flavors, and ideas to create something altogether new and totally your own.

Ingredients

  • 1 baguette
    2 large, ripe tomatoes
    1/3 of a red onion
    1 cup of fresh basil

  • 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil
    1 clove of garlic
    Kosher salt and cracked pepper (to taste)
Coletta’s Almond Ricotta Bruschetta

Instructions

  1. Begin by splitting your baguette in half, longways. Using the highest heat on your stove, broil your baguette until the surface is crisp and toasted. Run the raw clove of garlic over the surface. The crunchy surface should serve as a natural grater, allowing you to evenly distribute a layer of heat to every bite. Save any leftover garlic to add to your bruschetta later.
  2. Cut your tomatoes in half, remove the seeds, and dice them into small, bite-sized cubes. Similarly, dice your red onion.
  3. Toss the tomatoes and red onion together in a bowl, then mix them with olive oil. Once fully coated, season your veggies with crushed garlic, salt, and pepper.
  4. Using either your hands or a knife, chop up your basil. Thoroughly mix your basil with your veggies.
  5. Using a large spoon, portion your bruschetta mixture over the surface of your toasted baguette. Cut into slices and enjoy!
