Easy Vegan Cashew Ricotta Cheese Recipe

  • 2 cups of soaked cashews (soak in hot water at least 20 mins or overnight in warm/room temperature water)

  • 3 tbsp of distilled white vinegar (can be subbed with apple cider vinegar)

  • 1/4 cup of water

  • 1 tsp of sea or table salt

  • 1 tsp of cracked or black pepper

  • 1 tsp of garlic powder

  • 1 tsp of onion powder

  • Optional: 1 tbsp of nutritional yeast

Blend all ingredients until it is a ricotta cheese texture. This normally takes me about 2 minutes and I will stop it in between to push/merge ingredients back to the bottom to ensure it is all fully processed. Keep an eye on it and check the texture.
