How To Make Air Fryer Ricotta Toast
Mix the grape tomatoes, walnuts, garlic, olive oil, salt, and black pepper in a small mixing bowl. Mix well, so everything is well coated with olive oil. This helps the air fryer roast the vegetables. Pour the mixture into the air fryer basket and set the time for 5 minutes at 330 degrees F, air fryer setting.
Remove and let it slightly cool. Add your toast for about 2-3 minutes at 330 degrees F. Remove the toast and spread the ricotta cheese on top. Sprinkle with the roasted tomato mixture, sprinkle Parmesan cheese, chives, and parsley.
Whipped Ricotta vs. Plain Ricotta Cheese
Ricotta toast is fantastic with just about any type of cheese right out of the tub, seasoned on top. But if you want to make your meal complete and delicious- try adding some whipped Ricottas.
Whipped Ricotta Cheese: Whipped ricotta is the perfect addition to this toast. It has a light and airy texture that tastes amazing!

Is Ricotta Healthy?
Though ricotta is often overlooked in favor of more popular cheeses like mozzarella and cheddar, it’s worth giving this Italian cheese a try. Ricotta is lower in fat than other cheeses and is a good protein, calcium, and phosphorus source. It also has a relatively mild flavor that pairs well with sweet and savory dishes. Whether you’re using ricotta to make lasagna or tiramisu or just spreading it on some toast, there are plenty of ways to enjoy this healthy cheese.
