Have you ever made your own vegan cheese before? If not, you’ll be so surprised about how easy it is! This flavor-packed vegan tofu ricotta cheese recipe requires just 7 simple ingredients and a few minutes to make.
Vegan ricotta has so many applications and this can be used in place of ricotta cheese in almost any recipe. You can add it to pasta, pizza, a sandwich or even some desserts. We also have a baked ziti recipe that truly shines with this recipe.
This vegan ricotta recipe uses tofu as a base and with the addition of a few other simple ingredients, you have a plant-based cheese that tastes just like the “real” thing.
The best part is, it’s super simple to make and can be ready in just a few minutes. All you need is a food processor! If you don’t have one, you can even take the old fashioned route and use a fork to mash the tofu and just mix in the rest of the ingredients.
We promise after this, you’ll be a vegan cheese making pro! If you’re looking for more vegan cheese recipes to try out, we also have a baked almond cheese ball and a vegan mozzarella recipe, both of which are to die for!
