From the White Lotus Kitchen - Almond Ricotta
Thai Yoga Weekend
Memorial Day Retreat
June Yoga Teacher Training

A recent standout from the White Lotus Kitchen this past Pranayama retreat was our chef, Tamara Everett's, almond ricotta. A vegan version of traditional ricotta cheese. The ricotta accompanied an incredible Italian dinner of pasta puttanesca, braised greens with asparagus, an amazing, creative Caesar salad with a vegan Goddess dressing and sun seed parm, loaves of crusty, hot, whole grain bread with tapenade, and a killer dairy-free chocolate torte for dessert. Everyone went crazy for this meal and especially the almond ricotta. It was one of those, I can't believe its not butter moments. People were putting ricotta on everything they could get away with. I'm surprised several people didn't loose fingers in the process of relishing every last tantalizing bite.

Tamara created this recipe when she was attending The Natural Epicurean culinary school in Austin, Texas. It is one of her favorite plant based extras to add to an Italian dinner. She says this ricotta pleases and surprises people every time. The simple-to-make recipe below is great on bruschetta, dolloped on pasta, or served over roasted veggies. The recipe also allows for the addition of probiotics which will give it additional benefits along with a more authentic tang that certain cheeses have.

By popular demand, we bring you this plant-based, delicious almond ricotta.
