Sometimes (maybe often) you want something tasty, satisfying, and savory food. But you know that cashew ricotta cheese at the grocery store costs you a bit much to get all the time. And cashew nuts are not cheap to make your own at home either.

And it is delicious! It's better than store-bought, plus it only costs you a few bucks to make, and you get more than double the amount! It can't go wrong with this.


There are a few “secret” ingredients to this Vegan Ricotta. For taste, we add some miso paste beside Nutritional Yeast to make a mysterious, “cheesy” flavor. For texture, we use a Firm Tofu for the delicacy of ricotta cheese.

You can even make it with a blender like Ninja if you don't have a food processor. Add those ingredients to a blender or food processor with some Lemon, Garlic, Avocado Oil, and Salt, and you’re good to go! You can use this Vegan Ricotta Recipe in almost any recipe that includes Ricotta Cheese. You will love to use this cheese in your Eggplant Lasagna or even regular Vegan Lentil Spinach Lasagna for sure!
