Serves 4

Prep time: about 10 minutes

Cook time: about 30 mintues

Ingredients – Ricotta Cheese Pancakes

Two 15oz containers of Ricotta Cheese

1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup all purpose flour

2 large eggs

zest from one lemon

juice from half a lemon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

Extra virgin olive oil

Ingredients – Topical Fruit and Berry Medley

2 tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute if you prefer

1 ripe Mango diced

2 large Kiwi fruits diced

10 medium Strawberries diced

1/2 cup of Blueberries

Directions

Covering with a paper towel, drain the ricotta cheese if needed and add to a large mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients except olive oil and whisk together until a thick batter is formed. Heat about 1/4 teaspoon of olive oil in a non-stick pan on medium high heat. After pan is warm, drop batter using a large spoon, creating a natural circle of about 2 1/2 to 3 inches wide. Let cook for about 2 – 3 minutes. If the pancake slides easily, check the edges underneath. If the pancake moves easily, then flip it over carefully. You’ll get the hang of it after a while. Once flipped, you only need to brown the other side about a minute then remove from heat. Repeat the process until all the batter is used.

While you’re cooking the Ricotta Cheese pancakes, start dicing your fruit and add it to a bowl. Top diced fruit with 2 tablespoons of sugar and let sit for a couple of minutes.

Serve fruit on top of warm pancakes and enjoy. This dish will keep about a day so you enjoy cold leftovers too!
