Want ricotta? Don’t want it to disturb your lactose intolerance or vegan lifestyle? Then make this vegan tofu ricotta and live out all your cheesy dreams sans any repercussions!
This easy recipe is also a great way to utilize pantry items. You probably have most of these items already in your kitchen, especially if you’re vegan. The base is firm tofu that’s blitzed up with some tahini, nutritional yeast, white miso paste, and some herbs. In a matter of minutes, you’ll have vegan, protein packed ricotta that you can’t stop eating out of the container. And who am I to stop you?
Add this easy recipe to your meal prep repertoire and make a big batch on Sunday to enjoy throughout the week. This herby, rich ricotta alternative can be used anywhere you would usually use ricotta. Top pizza with it, dip veggies into it, mix it with sautéed spinach and make stuffed shells. I love spreading it on top of a thick piece of sourdough and topping it with tomatoes and a drizzle of olive oil.
