    Manuka Honey and Cashew Ricotta Crostini

    This simple recipe combines a creamy, dairy-free spread with the herbaceous sweetness of manuka honey. If you’re avoiding cashews, use almonds or hulled sunflower seeds instead. For a thicker “ricotta,” transfer blended cashews to cheesecloth and squeeze out excess liquid, then add more lemon, salt, and pepper to taste. Serve with crostini, crackers, or raw vegetables for even more prebiotic power
