Buy Vegan Ricotta

Vegan ricotta cheese is so easy, light, creamy, and versatile. You can make it with 3 simple ingredients in less than one hour, and you can use it exactly like regular ricotta.This is the best nut-free, gluten-free, dairy-free ricotta. It has a creamy, soft texture and a neutral flavor that is perfect for making both sweet and savory dishes like ricotta pies, stuffed pasta, and much more.

First things first, Ricotta is an Italian cheese made from dairy milk leftover from the making of other cheeses. Ricotta in Italian literally means "recooked". The name makes sense because the leftover whey (a protein) is fermented allowing it to become more acidic, then heated a second time, almost to boiling temperature, so that the combination of acidity and high temperature changes the structure of the proteins in the whey (denaturation), transforming them in a fine curd.The fine curd is then strained to separate it from the liquid, through a fine-mesh cloth, then pressed into a ricotta mold. The result is ricotta cheese, a white, light, and creamy cheese.We've been making vegan ricotta for a few years now. Along with our melty vegan cheese, it's our favorite plant-based, dairy-free cheese because it's really easy to make, cheap, and goes well with everything.

In general, there are two main methods for making vegan ricotta: one with soy milk, and the other with blended nuts. They are both delicious, however, we recommend you try the soy milk method, which yields ricotta that is very similar to authentic Italian ricotta, both in texture and flavor.Like in real ricotta making, we use acidity (vinegar) and high temperature to curdle the protein in soy milk. This method is so easy and so effective!So in this blog post, we will show you all the tips to make the best vegan ricotta with three ingredients: soy milk, salt, and vinegar. If you want to learn how to make vegan ricotta with nuts, such as cashew nuts or almonds, then check out our variation section below.

Making vegan ricotta from store-bought soy milk is actually very easy and it only takes about 45 minutes with a bit of practice!In a large pot bring the soy milk to a boil stirring continuously as the soy milk might stick to the bottom of the pot. Once the milk boils, turn the heat off immediately, then add the salt and the vinegar.Stir with a spoon for 1 minute and you will see the milk begin to curdle. Now, set it aside and wait for 10 minutes.

Once the milk has been drained the ricotta is ready to be used for both sweet (such as cannoli or ricotta pies) and savory (such as pasta bakes, pizza with tomato sauce, ravioli with spinach, cannelloni) dishes.

For best visual results, use a ricotta cheese mold that you can purchase online. The ricotta will have the same shape as the one you find in cheese stores.Put the ricotta in the mold, press it well, then flip the mold upside down onto a plate to get the ricotta out. It's so much fun to make it this way.

Over time we've received a lot of questions from our readers, especially about what kind of soy milk to use to make the perfect vegan ricotta cheese.So we rolled up our sleeves and decided to try making ricotta with all the types of soy milk we could find in the supermarkets in our area.The result was amazing, and testing so many types of milk, over 30 different brands, gave us the opportunity to find guidelines to understand which soy milk is the best to make ricotta. The good news is that most brands of soy milk on the market will work perfectly. There are so many these days that you can choose one based on your budget, your taste, and the recipe you need to make.But according to our test results from a sample of 30 types and brands of soy milk I want to share with you some key takeaways.

Curdling soy milk is by far our favorite way of making vegan ricotta, however, you could, if you wanted to, try nut-based or tofu-based ricotta. There are several kinds:

Store leftovers in the same cheese mold you made it with, or in a bowl, covered with a plate, in the fridge for up to 5 days.If you see that your vegan ricotta changes color slightly and it gets a bit off white, don't worry that's normal when it stays in the refrigerator for a few days.

In order to make a full basket, we really advise making a double portion. Depending on the protein content of your soy milk (and therefore, the amount of vegan ricotta it will yield), making a double batch is the safest option to fill out a ricotta mold.I hope this helps. Have a wonderful rest of your weekend.Kindest,Louise

Since I can no longer eat dairy and had several containers in the freezer of home made sauce and did not want to just keep eating pasta. I went in search of non dairy ricotta. Your recipe was the first thing to pop up. I then saw the string cheese recipe as well. I made spinach lasagna with both of them. It was really good. My daughter was eating it and forgot that it was made with the cheeses I made. Next I think I will try the focaccia.

Hi Nikki, great, happy it turned out well! We usually use local brands here in Italy. A good international brand is Alpro. We tested over 50 brands of soy milk over the last few months and what's important to make a good vegan ricotta is the content of soy in the milk. You can read the % amount of soy in the ingredient list. From our testing anything above 7% works well ?

Hi Nico! I am so happy I found this recipe, your website and your YouTube Channel! Your recipes are so easy and delicious. I have allergies to dairy and nuts, and I could never find a dairy-free cheese that was for me. After finding your recipe, I make this ricotta cheese recipe all the time, as well as many of your other delicious recipes.

Can you please make a recipe for firm soy cheese and soy yoghurt? The supermarkets here in Australia don't have cheese or yoghurt with soy... I would love it if you could make a recipe for these please as I am ok with soy products with my allergies.I'm sure these recipes would be as popular as your ricotta recipe!Thank you for inspiring me, Nico. You are amazing, keep shining!

Hi, if one wants to make more than 200-250 g of ricotta, can the recipe then just be doubled for example? Would it still take the same amount of time to drain? Or is it better to make the recipe then twice?

Hi, sorry if this is a stupid question, but the notes say, " gallon (1 Litre) of soy milk yields about 7 to 9 oz (200 - to 250 grams) of vegan ricotta cheese" and the ingredients list says, "Servings 6 7oz to 9 oz 200g - 250g". Does 1 litre of soy milk make 6 x 7-9 oz. servings or just 7-9 oz.? Thanks!

I just tried it! It's incredible. It doesn't taste like soy milk or vinegar at all. The texture is on point and it actually tastes very similar to traditional ricotta (at least if i remember it right haha)Thank you so much for this amazing recipe!

Have you tried drying this ricotta out in the oven so it can become hard for grating? Wondering if it will work. I am trying it now, only one day so far, but it seems rubbery. I am not sure if it will get hard enough, but i will try a few more days.

Thanks for sharing this! I made my first batch and it was super easy. I did not know if you were aware of the experimental vegan baking work of Moira Wright. She also curdles soy milk and creates amazing desserts with the curds and the whey. She has a page and group on Facebook called Aquafabulous Baking the Soy Whey. You should check her out.

Hi Nico,I'm an Italian-American (well, half, on my mother's side but that's the size that counts!) who misses the dishes of my youth. Now I can enjoy them again! One question: I have citric acid in my cupboard from the days when I used to make NON-vegan. Will that work for this recipe?

Hi Melissa, I don't think it will work with oat or rice milk, they lack the protein of the soy that turns into ricotta. If you'd like to make a cheese with oat or rice milk I recommend our recipe for vegan stracchino. It's an Italian cheese spread that it's in between a mozzarella and a cream cheese. Here's the link: -stracchino/

Hi Alex, the calories of the ricotta are different because we strip the milk from almost all the water, and from parts of fat and protein. Btw, it's very difficult to estimate calories for this specific recipe, so they are just an estimation ?

Blend: Drain cashews and place all remaining ingredients into a blender or food processor, process until creamy stopping to scrape down the sides every few minutes. Taste for flavors adding any additional ingredients. Some like a salty ricotta so feel free to add as much salt as you want.

Add this ricotta to things like my Zucchini Lasagna, My Favorite Vegan Pizza, or Stuffed Shells! It would also make a delicious addition to things like my Lentil Bolognese Sauce to make the sauce creamier and cheesier. YUM.

I really liked this recipe! I made this to put in a vegan/gluten free lasagna to accommodate my friends with dietary restrictions. I am not vegan nor gluten free, but I really loved this as a ricotta replacement. I have made it twice and the first time I used slivered almonds as the recipe states, but the second time I used dry-roasted marcona almonds. The slivered almonds definitely had a better result. The marcona almonds were not bad, but you could definitely tell they were roasted almonds because it had a more toasty flavor. If I make this again I will use the slivered almonds. Overall a great alternative to traditional ricotta! 041b061a72
