Easy Vegan Ricotta (Nut Free)

I’ve tried quite a few vegan ricotta brands, all of which had some questionable ingredients and tasted a little… off. I was so happy when I figured out how to make my own because it’s just tastes so much better. The best part is how easy it is, all you need is six simple ingredients and a food processor or blender.


  • 1 14 oz block extra firm tofu
  • 1/4 cup olive oil + more as needed
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp white miso paste
  • 1/2 tsp salt + more to taste


  1. Wrap the tofu in a a few paper towels or clean kitchen towel and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. It’s ok if it crumbles.
  2. Add the tofu to the bowl of a food processor along with the remaining ingredients and blend until very smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. If the mixture seems too thick, add more olive oil 1 tbsp at a time.
