Tofu Ricotta

Servings: 8

I love this ricotta for my salads, but it also really jazzes up a plain bowl of pasta with marinara while adding a good bit of protein to a usually carb-heavy dish.

Recipe added on February 7, 2010 by



Wrap tofu in a clean kitchen towel and place between two cutting boards. Place a heavy object, such as a 28-ounce can of tomatoes or beans, on top. Let rest 20 minutes, allowing the weight to press out extra moisture in the tofu. Unwrap tofu and pat dry. In a large mixing bowl, crumble tofu with your hands. Then mix in remaining ingredients plus salt and pepper to taste. Eat within 1 week.
