Vegan Tofu Ricotta


 Ingredients

- 1 block extra firm tofu

- 1/3 cup nutritional yeast

- 1/4 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk

- 2 tablespoons lemon juice

- 1 tablespoon olive oil

- 1 teaspoon salt

- 1 teaspoon garlic powder


Optional: flax seeds, fresh herbs, and edible flowers to garnish.


 Instructions (using a food processor*)

* If you don't have a food processor, you can use a fork to mash the tofu until it reaches the same smooth and creamy consistency, as I did in the video.


1. Prepare the Tofu

   - Drain one block of extra firm tofu to remove excess water.


2. Blend the Ingredients

   - Crumble the tofu into a food processor or blender. Add 1/3 cup nutritional yeast, 1/4 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon garlic powder.


3. Process Until Smooth

   - Blend the mixture until it reaches a smooth, creamy consistency.



4. Mould and Decorate

   - Scoop the tofu ricotta into a small bowl or mould. Press it down firmly to take shape. Decorate the top with a sprinkle of flax seeds, fresh herbs, and edible flowers.


5. Chill and Serve

   - Let the tofu ricotta chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to firm up before serving. 





 Options for Using Vegan Tofu Ricotta
