Easy Homemade Vegan Ricotta

My normal vegan ricotta recipe is Andreea’s deliciously creamy almond milk ricotta, but this week I opted for a slightly chunkier cashew version. The almond version is creamier and more luxurious, but sometimes I prefer not to take the time to skin almonds, and a big batch of this cashew ricotta comes together in a food processor in less than 10 minutes. You do have to remember to put the cashews in a bowl of water to soak overnight before you go to bed though!
