Vegan ricotta? We can't say it enough - cashews are the best! They're one of the most nutritious nuts out there, and a great source of magnesium, copper and iron. One great thing about them is how versatile they are - great in both sweet and savory dishes, they also turn into cashew milk, cashew cream, cashew yogurt, vegan cashew cheese and even cashew cheesecake filling! They're always worth keeping in your cupboard. This cashew-based vegan ricotta is an excellent addition to a summery veggie wrap, and also makes a great filling for zucchini cannelloni!
