Tofu Ricotta (great with lasagna): Recipe #277

Just because you’re eating plant-based doesn’t mean you can’t make a creamy lasagna! This tofu ricotta is your new best friend. Pair it with your favorite tomato sauce, veggies, and lasagna noodles, then bake a delicious Sunday dinner that also makes fantastic leftovers.

I hope you enjoy this recipe, which is part of our 1,000 Food Experiments to create sustainable meals for our family and yours.

Directions for Tofu Ricotta

1. Put all the ingredients in your blender, and blend it up until it’s fairly smooth. And that’s all there is to it!

2. Add the tofu ricotta to your favorite lasagna recipe – I like to layer noodles, sauce, zucchini, and ricotta, then bake at about 400F for about 30 minutes.
