  • 1 lb. (450g) crumbly ricotta cheese
  • 2 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese , plus extra for serving
  • 2 tbsp flour (if the cheese is too creamy you can add one tbsp more)
  • 1 egg
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  • In a bowl mix the ricotta with the Parmesan, flour, salt and egg. Season with pepper and set aside in the fridge for few minutes.
  • Heat oil in a nonstick frying pan. Take spoonfuls of ricotta mixture and fry the cakes for a few minutes until brown on each side. They can be pretty hard to flip but if you do it gently it will work fine. 
  • Gently remove from the pan and serve warm with fresh ripe tomatoes and your favorite herbs and dressings.
