Who knew vegan ricotta was this easy! Simply soak your almonds overnight and blend with Almo Crème, Almo Milk, lemon juice and a sprinkle of salt; it’s that simple. You can whip up a batch in under 10 minutes and serve immediately.
Delicious on its own, scooped up with carrot sticks or spread on grilled ciabatta with a drizzle of olive oil and cracked pepper. You can also get fancy and flavour your freshly made ricotta with herbs and spices. We love smoked paprika and roasted capsicum for a romesco dip, or a tangy combination of green olives, garlic and lemon.
Due to its mild character, the ricotta mellows out robust flavours and lends creaminess to a diverse array of sweet and savoury dishes. It’s an ideal substitute for cheese in cannelloni, calzones, pizza, lasagna, and our Roasted Pumpkin & Vegan Ricotta Pasta Bake. With subtle hints of almond, it’s also perfect in Italian desserts or topped with blueberries and maple syrup.
