Great recipe! I used it for stuffed manicotti. I did decrease the amount of garlic powder to 1/2 teaspoon though. On my bottle it said 1 clove of garlic = 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder. So.....1 Tablespoon would be equal to 24 cloves of garlic if I did my math right, haha?

This is REMARKABLY similar to the real thing in texture and taste. I used extra firm tofu and just as a preference, I omitted oil.

We use 2-3 cloves of fresh garlic instead of powdered but follow the recipe otherwise. It's a delicious substitute for ricotta. We actually prefer it. Thanks!

I LOVE the idea, as my DD has a dairy allergy. I tried it with a 12 oz box of Tofu, but it had quite a bite. I need to either reduce the spices, or up the tofu. I used it in a ham/mashed potatoe casserole and it was good. I will rate once I try it again, but I think this is great!

Awesome! Used it to make whole wheat calzones. Added soy parmesan, soy mozzarella and a crumbled Boca All American burger. Very yummy with some tomato sauce on the side for dipping Can't wait to try it in lasagna.

I mixed it with spinach and made a veggie lasagna with Daiya Italian. I am kinda lukewarm on ricotta, but I liked this much better. In fact, probably the best lasagna I have eaten.

This was perfect. I used it in my favorite lasagna recipe and didn't notice any difference. I used soft tofu, in a blender and I thought the texture was pretty good, but I think next time I will try medium to try and get a slightly closer match in texture.

This stuff is great. I used it in a zucchini/eggplant bake last week. Tonight I made "ricotta" balls, mixing this tofu stuff with breadcrumbs and baking for 30 minutes. It was delicious with linguini and marinara sauce. Great sub for ricotta. Can't wait to make some stuffed shells or lasagna!

I used extra firm tofu, and the texture came out grate. It didn't blend well in a regular blender for lack of liquids. Perhaps a food processor would have been better, or a hand blender. All it needed was some salt- but we all loved it!

Great sub for ricotta! Would be great to use 1/2 this and 1/2 ricotta for non-veggies- in order to increase soy in your diet. Was a a little thin so I added some seasoned bread crumbs to make it thicker. Some shredded or chopped fresh spinach would be great in here too! Thanks for a healthier choice Hadice!
