Making homemade Ricotta Cheese – dairy free isn’t quite as difficult as one would think. When Michaela was diagnosed with dairy allergies, I thought there would be a lot of foods that she would have to avoid but boy was I wrong! With a few, simple ingredients, we can enjoy the same meals as before that called for Ricotta cheese.
Homemade Ricotta Cheese – Dairy Free
- 1 carton Extra Firm Organic Tofu
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 cup Nutritional Yeast
- 1 tbsp. Lemon Juice
- 1 tsp chopped fresh Basil (1/2 tsp if using store bought)
- 1 tsp honey or Agave
- salt and pepper to taste
Drain liquid from Tofu and put in medium size bowl. Whisk together all dried ingredients in small bowl and add to Toful
Add remaining ingredients to mixture and mix with a hand masher.
Mix until all ingredients are blended well. That’s it! You now have homemade Ricotta Cheese – dairy free! It’s as simple as that!
