Mushroom-Ricotta Tartines

Caregory : Dinner Ideas

Enjoy the art of presentation with a tartine—a sandwich that's a feast for the eyes and taste buds, served open-faced. Here, we slather a thick slice of good crusty whole-wheat bread with a creamy pesto-ricotta spread and top it with golden-brown sautéed mushrooms. Any tender, quick-cooking mushroom would work for this recipe. Oyster mushrooms, chanterelles and shiitake mushrooms would all be delicious. Enjoy it as is or take it to the next level by adding a poached or fried egg on top.


    • 4 (3/4-inch-thick) slices crusty whole-wheat bread

    • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

    • 1 pound sliced fresh cremini mushrooms

    • 3/4 cup whole-milk ricotta cheese

    • 1/4 cup refrigerated basil pesto

    • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper, divided

    • 2 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan cheese

    • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil


    1. Brush both sides of bread slices evenly with 2 tablespoons oil. Cook in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
    2. Add mushrooms and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil to the pan; cook over medium-high heat, undisturbed, for 3 minutes. Stir and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and most of the liquid has released, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
    3. Meanwhile, stir ricotta, pesto and 1/8 teaspoon pepper together in a small bowl.
    4. Top the toasted bread slices evenly with ricotta mixture, sautéed mushrooms, Parmesan, basil and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
