Honey Ricotta Wrap with Fresh Fruit

I love this time of year. Well, the sudden availability of fresh and local summer fruits and veggies, not the oppressive TX heat. Just to be clear.

A few springs ago my husband and I visited his Aunt Sylvia, who made us some fabulous breakfast “burros”: comforting and warm overstuffed wraps filled with fresh sautéed veggies and maybe some eggs and cheese. Since then I have been hooked on tortilla-filled creations, usually with savory fillings. However, this morning I managed to wrangle a sizable amount of blackberries from the critters that like to share my garden’s efforts and decided to shape a filling combination around these juicy tart fruits.

Blackberry BowlThe Honey Ricotta Wraps were extremely quick and easy to assemble. After warming a whole wheat tortilla, I spread on some local whipped honey from the farmer’s market, followed by several sizable dollops of homemade ricotta cheese (for a creamier and even richer texture, whip it with a beater first). Then I added some sliced blackberries and peaches and topped it all with barely a pinch of sea salt to contrast some of the overall sweetness. You could use any type of fresh fruit in this wrap. I bet mangoes, strawberries, and bananas would be delicious. The finished wrap was warm and comforting, and very light but substantial enough for a meal.

I hope you enjoy!
