Artichoke (vegan) ricotta grilled cheeses! Who wants one!?🙃 One of my most favorite recipes I have created to date is my spinach almond ricotta ! Iv thrown it into lasagna , pasta, pasta shells, pizza, tortellinis and now into a sandwich 🤭 it’s just tooooo good! Below I put is the ricotta recipe! Let me know if you guys would want the super simple “grilled cheese” recipe too and I’ll get on it ❣️ Vegan spinach almond Ricotta
1 (14 ounce) package of firm tofu
1 cup raw almonds
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 tbsp garlic powder
1/2 tbsp onion powder
1/4 tsp pepper
3 cups chopped spinach
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Place your raw almonds into the boiling water. Let boil for 2 minutes.
Drain the almonds immediately in a colander or strainer and rinse them with cold water to cool them. Blot the almonds dry with a paper towel.
Use your fingers to gently squeeze the almonds and loosen the skin from them. Set skinless almonds in a bowl and set aside.
Remove tofu from package and wrap in a clean kitchen towel or paper towel and squeeze for 20 seconds to allow for excess water to strain.
In a food processor or high speed blender combine tofu, blanched almonds, nutritional yeast, unsweetened almond milk, garlic powder, onion powder, salt & pepper. Blend for 1-2 minutes or until there is no chunks. Mixture will look lumpy and that is okay! Add more almond milk if needed.
In a small pan cook chopped spinach with 1 tbsp on water for 1 minute or until spinach is wilted down.
Once ricotta mixture is made and spinach is ready, combine the two in a medium size bowl and mix well. Taste mixture and add any extra salt or seasonings if needed. #grilledcheese #vegan
