Lemon Ricotta Toast


  • 1/3 cup (83g) “Lucerne” part-skim ricotta cheese

  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

  • ⅛ teaspoon lemon zest

  • 2 large (100g) eggs

  • 2 slices (56g) “Dave’s Killer Bread” thin-sliced, powerseed 


  1. Place ricotta, lemon juice, lemon zest in a medium bowl and mix to combine. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. Bring a pot of water (at least 4 inches deep) to a low boil. While the water is heating, divide the ricotta evenly between the two toasts 

  3. To poach the eggs, crack an egg into a small bowl or ramekin and set aside. Using a large spoon, gently swirl the water in the pot to create a vortex. Slip the egg from the small bowl into the middle of the vortex and let cook for 3 minutes. Remove the egg from the water using a slotted spoon and gently place on top of the ricotta 

  4. Repeat poaching process for second toast.

  5. Garnish toasts with additional herbs, salt and pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil, if desired (macros not included).


  1. Any brand of part-skim ricotta can be substituted. The macros will be similar but may not match exactly.

  2. Looking for a little extra protein? Try adding smoked salmon (macros not included).

  3. Did you know you can poach eggs ahead of time? After the eggs have finished cooking, place them in a bath of ice water and store in the fridge for up to 5 days. When ready to eat, just drop the egg in a bowl of boiling water for 20-30 seconds, or until warmed through.

  4. This dish is best eaten right when assembled, but the ricotta can be prepared ahead of time and stored separately in the fridge for up to 3 days.
