Sounds heavenly right?

And you’ll feel a little victory every time someone says out loud:

“This is so good! Is this cheese?”

This spread is a delicious and healthy alternative to traditional ricotta, easy to make and requires just 2 ingredients!

Macadamia nuts and cashews make amazing ricotta too.

We decided to share 2 different versions of toppings with you. Because they’re both too good to pass up on.

HOW

1 Soak almonds in water (5-6 hours, or overnight). If you’re in a rush, you can speed this process up by soaking them in boiling water (for about 10-15 minutes) The skins should then peel easily off. Use your fingers to gently squeeze them. Discard the skins, rinse almonds under running water.
2 Place peeled almonds in high-speed blender/food processor with a small pinch of salt. Add about 1/4 cup of water. Blend low speed for a few seconds.
Add more water if needed and blend until you get a ricotta-like consistency.

TAHINI/SESAME TOAST:
1 Spread toasted bread with a generous portion of your almond ricotta.
*Top, with a few slices of figs.
*Drizzle, with a bit of honey and tahini
*Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

ROSEMARY/ALMOND TOAST:
1 Spread toasted bread with a generous portion of your almond ricotta.
*Top, with a few slices of figs.

NOTE

You can keep leftover almond ricotta in your fridge for about a week.
