Soft Ricotta Cheese

Posted on

This “ricotta” fooled even my most skeptical taste testers. It’s great for a filler in other recipes, or can be eaten plain on crackers! Try it in the Spinach Ricotta Stuffed Shells recipe.. it’s my favorite.

Equipment

  • Food processor or blender

Ingredients
  

  • 1 Package of Extra Firm Tofu 14oz. drained and pressed
  • Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • ½-1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • Tsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 1 medium Sweet Onion diced

Instructions
 

  • Drain tofu and press between two towels with a heavy object on top for 10 minutes.
  • Cook the sweet onion in a pan over medium heat until translucent. Do not use oil. Splash water to prevent burning.

Notes

The food processor will push all ingredients to the outer portion of the blades. Use a spoon to push everything back to the center to insure mixture is blending.
