Tofu Ricotta

Prep: 10 minutes


Use this instead of soy cheese as a topping for pizza, or in any other recipe that calls for processed soy cheese.


  • 12.3 ounce package silken tofu
  • 1 pound fresh water-packed tofu
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • several twists freshly ground pepper


Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth, or mash with a bean masher for a coarser texture.

Hint: Leave out the basil, oregano and garlic for a plain ricotta substitute.
