  This recipe was originally inspired by my desire to try Kite Hill’s “ricotta.”  I had heard so many great things about how much it tastes just like real ricotta, but it’s made with almonds. I was definitely intrigued.  I wanted to try something a little different than what I usually gravitate towards, and then tartines popped into my head.  Since I’ve been chowing down on CaStrawberries for the last 3 months I decided to get crazy and put the “ricotta” and strawberries together.  Holy f’n F! These things were meant to be together. Just call me match-maker!! lol

Before I post the recipe, I have obviously made this to be paleo, but if you are down for using a baguette instead of a sweet potato, then be my guest!

strawberry tartine


Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 4-6


  • 1 sweet potato (I used the Hannah variety), sliced
  • 1 package of Kite Hill "ricotta"
  • 4-6 fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 5 basil leaves, chopped
  • 3-5 prosciutto pieces
  • drizzle of reduced balsamic


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Slice your sweet potato length wise. You want them to be about 1/4 in. thick.
  3. Drizzle the sweet potato with a little oil and place on a baking sheet. Let cook for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. While waiting for sweet potato to cook, slice your strawberries and basil and set aside.
  5. Reduce your balsamic by placing 1 cup of balsamic vinegar into a small pot and letting come to a boil. Once boiling, turn down to med-low and let reduce until thick (about 10 min)
  6. Once sweet potato is cooked, take some "ricotta" and spread it on the potato.
  7. Next add a slice of prosciutto followed by a few slices of strawberries.
  8. Top it off with some fresh basil and a drizzle of the reduced balsamic vinegar

Like I said earlier, this is a great little appetizer to bring to a summer party. You could even make small ones by slicing the sweet potato width wise.

If trying Kite Hill’s ricotta makes you a little nervioso, don’t be. It’s worth the money and tastes delicious!! But if you like, you can use regular ricotta cheese and it will taste just as awesome!!
