Vegan Almond Ricotta

Valentina

No dairy? No problem - this almond ricotta is your new best friend. Use a food processor to blend down a combination of almonds, water, lemon juice, vinegar, nutritional yeast, and salt. It will create a thick and delicious ricotta substitute in minutes. To make it extra smooth and creamy, try using an immersion blender to finish it off in a second round of blending. Use this vegan ricotta in your favorite pasta dishes, salads, and pizzas.

Shopping List
  • 1 cup blanched slivered almonds
  • 33333333/100000000 cup + 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon + 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar (optional, Note 1)
  • 1 pinch of garlic powder

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until it's super smooth, about 2 to 3 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  2. Step 2 (Optional): For best results, transfer the blended ricotta to a wide mason jar and finish it off with an immersion blender. The immersion blender will be able to break down the almonds until it is silky smooth.
  3. Serve: Transfer the ricotta to an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to use. This is great in Jungle Salad, Roasted Beets with Pomegranate Vinaigrette, and even Pistachio Cheesecakes.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: Cream of Tartar gives the ricotta a slightly tangier flavor, like traditional cheese. I've also found it helps stabilize the ricotta slightly better.
