Griddled Ricotta, Peach & Basil Sourdough Tartines Recipe

Blog Recipes

These easy open-style sandwiches make a lovely light and refreshing DIY summer picnic lunch. Just pack up the individual pre-prepared elements and allow everyone to slather the ricotta onto their griddled sourdough slices with a spoonful of peaches, some pink radicchio leaves, fresh basil, and a drizzle of honey to finish. The caramelised fruit and hint of basil go perfectly with the sweetness of Mirabeau Provence Rosé.

Ingredients (serves 4-6)

  • 250g / 8oz tub ricotta cheese
  • 3-4 peaches, chopped
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp honey, plus extra to drizzle
  • Chicory or radicchio
  • Fresh Basil
  • Sea salt flakes
  • Sourdough loaf, sliced


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C. Toss the chopped peaches with the balsamic vinegar and honey, and spread out onto a roasting tray. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the peaches have softened and begin to caramelise. Halfway through the roasting time, shake the tray to ensure the fruit cooks evenly. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
  2. Heat a griddle pan until very hot. Place two slices of sourdough onto the pan and press down to ensure that the bread chars evenly. Leave for 2-3 minutes until charred on one side, and flip over to repeat on the other side.
  3. When you’re ready to serve, slather some ricotta over a slice of griddled sourdough followed by a few radicchio leaves. Then pile on the roasted peaches, tear over some fresh basil and finish with an extra drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of sea salt.
  4. Serve in the sunshine with a crisp glass of Mirabeau Pure Rosé.
