As much as I love plums, I’m sad because their appearance at the farmer’s market means that we’ve reached the beginning of the end of summer. I plan to enjoy these last few weeks to the fullest, which means lots of pool time, dining at places with outdoor patios, and cooking without turning on the oven. It’s hot out there folks!
I made these simple grilled plum flatbreads over the weekend. Grilling stone fruits really brings out their flavor and juiciness. Paired with peppery arugula, these make the perfect quick snack for after a long day in the sun.
Grilled Plum and Ricotta Flatbread
3 small plums
1/3 cup ricotta cheese
3/4 cup arugula
1 T balsamic glaze
Heat a grill pan to medium high heat. Slice the plums and cook slices on grill pan until charred, about 4 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat a dry skillet over medium heat. Cook the tortilla until crispy, flipping once. Spread the ricotta cheese on the crispy tortilla. Top with arugula and grilled plums. Drizzle with balsamic glaze.
