How Do I Make Vegan & Dairy Free Ricotta?

  1. Add all ingredients to a medium mixing bowl. With a fork, mash the tofu and stir all in ingredients together until well combined, and the tofu has the consistency of ricotta cheese.
  2. Alternatively you can mix in a blender or food processor for a smoother texture- but I found the ricotta to have the best texture when hand-mixed in a bowl.
  3. Use this tofu ricotta in any savory dish that would use normal ricotta (like lasagna or a stuffed pasta), mangia!
