How to make it

  • Vanilla Sugar:
  • Place sugar in the bowl of a food processor. Using a paring knife, slice the vanilla bean in half lengthways and scrape the seeds from the middle. Add the seeds to the sugar. Pulse 10-15 times until the vanilla and sugar are combined. Cut the empty vanilla pod into 1 inch pieces and place in a glass mason jar. Add the vanilla sugar to the jar and seal. Shake the jar before using. - Yield 2 Cups.
  • Croutons:
  • Preheat oven to 400*F. In a medium bowl, toss together the bread cubes and melted butter. Add the vanilla sugar and toss until the cubes are coated. Arrange in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake until golden brown. Cool completely.
  • Syrup:
  • In a small saucepan, bring orange juice, lemon juice and sugar to a simmer over a medium low heat. Stir until the sugar has dissolved (about 2-3 min). Add blueberries and strawberries and simmer until the fruit softens (about 6-8 min). Cool to room temperature.
  • Ricotta:
  • Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix well.
  • Serving:
  • Divide the ricotta mixture into 4 serving bowls. Spoon the fruit syrup over the ricotta and top with a few croutons. Garnish with thinly sliced mint.
