I'm not a big fan of dairy ricotta cheese. I don't know, it's something to do with the texture. That being said, making ricotta with almonds appeals to me. Healthy, non-dairy, and the texture is "right". So glad I found this. This “cheese” can be used to stuff noodles, added on top of spaghetti, combined with some nutritional yeast for a cheesy mac and cheese dish, or any other dish you can imagine up! You don't have to remove the skins, it really just makes it look more like cheese. So if you don't mind the flecks of brown, go ahead and skip that step. This recipe makes approximately 2 cups of cheese. Fresh herbs are best, but you can use a little less(or to taste) dried. From The Unintentional Vegan.
