Macadamia Cauliflower Ricotta “Cheese”

  • Author: Caitlin


Creamy, cheesy, vegan and Paleo, this ricotta cheese is the perfect stand-in for dairy-free folks. Its so good, your dairy-eating friends will prefer it!


  • 1 cup unsalted roasted macadamia nuts
  • 1 cup steamed cauliflower
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (or Himalayan)
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 12 Tablespoons water or broth
  • optional: 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Add macadamia nuts, cauliflower, salt, and lemon juice to food processor. Process until well combined.
  2. Scrape down the sides and add water or broth as needed. Add optional herbs and spices and process until a mostly smooth ricotta-like consistency is reached.


If using salted macadamia nuts, add the salt towards the end to avoid over-salting.
