Ingredients to prepare tofu ricotta

  • Tofu. Use extra firm tofu and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
  • Lemon. You can use the lemon zest as well.
  • Garlic. It is better to use pressed garlic, so it mixes better with the rest of the ingredients.
  • Nutritional Yeast. This is the nutritional yeast I use, I buy mine on Amazon, but it’s fine whatever brand you like.
  • Red crushed pepper. Just because a little chili makes everything taste better, don’t you think?
  • Salt
  • Extra virgin olive oil

How to make tofu ricotta cheese?

  • Food processor (affiliate link). The easiest way to do this tofu ricotta recipe is in the food processor (affiliate link), put everything in the container, press it, and that’s it. The nice thing about doing it this way is that you can control the texture really well.
  • Blender. Add everything to the blender and turn on on low-medium speed. I don’t love this method because the ingredients may not mix well, and you can’t control the texture.
  • By hand. Beat all the ingredients by hand with a wooden spoon in a large bowl. Beat, beat, beat until everything is well mixed and has the consistency of ricotta cheese.
