Some vegan cheese recipes turn into a nightmare when put into practice, but try to make this a really easy and quick recipe… you have no excuses, try it… you can give it your touch or change it by adding herbs, dried tomatoes, roasted peppers or olives.
*2 cups raw cashews , soaked overnight.
*1/4 cup water , add more if you want a more liquid texture
*3 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
*1/2 teaspoon sea salt
*1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper , optional
Put all ingredients into a food processor and blend until it resembles a ricotta like texture.
Soak cashews overnight or boil them for 30 minutes to soften.
You can use raw slivered almonds instead of cashews for a very similar result. Another nut will work as well, but the flavor will be a bit different.
This recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups of ricotta, serving size is 1/4 cup.
