  • 1 handful cilantro or parsley, chopped to garnish
  • 14 ounces firm or extra firm tofu
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 2 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup bottled or canned lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 cups Pacific Foods™ Organic Vegan Creamy Tomato Basil Soup
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  • Step 1

    Prepare vegan ricotta: Combine tofu, cashews, chopped garlic, first amount of oil and the lemon juice in a food processor or blender and process until fairly smooth, some grainy texture is ok. Pause to scrape down as needed. Season with first amount of salt. Transfer to a sealed container and store in the fridge until ready to use. It lasts about 7 to 10 days. It can be frozen, but the texture may change slightly. 

  • Step 2

    Heat a skillet over medium and add the second amount of olive oil and the onion. Sauté until the onions are translucent and lightly browned, about 6 minutes.  

  • Step 3

    Add the bell pepper and minced garlic to the onion and cook for 4 to 5 minutes to soften. Stir in the ground coriander, cumin, nutmeg and paprika.

  • Step 4

    Add the soup and tomato and let come to a simmer. Simmer until reduced and thickened slightly and the tomato has broken down, about 5 to 10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste (I used 1/2 teaspoon salt).  

  • Step 5

    Dollop on the vegan ricotta and garnish with herbs. Serve with toast or pita on the side!
